One of the most fascinating aspects of sports in general and chess in particular is that there is no such thing as predetermined results.

Breaking news diary:

The formidable Russian team had been advancing through the tournament at full steam and it seemed as if nothing could take them away from the winning path. The fate of round seven wanted it a bit differently, though. Somewhere around move 40, Goryachkina and Vavulin resigned their second and third board games against Amin and Parham due to inevitable mating threats. In the remaining games the Iranian players had an extra pawn each, but the captain, IM Harandi demanded the top board player Asgarizadeh to offer a draw in order to seal the result. Russia eventually won the last board game but this did not change anything already. Iran won by 2,5 - 1,5!

Here is an interview with part of the happy winners, in a moment when the last game was still going on:

The fight at the top has tightened as there are three teams in shared lead with 12 points, namely Iran, Russia and India, with Ukraine trailing by just a point. Four other teams have ten points. With three rounds to go, and Caissa seemingly willing to exert her whims, anything can happen...
