FIDE World Cup 4.2: So, Svidler & Nepo out

Wesley So and Peter Svidler are both out of the 2019 FIDE World Cup after failing to win on demand against Nikita Vitiugov and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave. The surprise was that 5th seed Ian Nepomniachtchi joined them after losing what was close to a winning position against Yu Yangyi. There were comebacks for Jeffery Xiong, who exploited a strange opening choice by Jan-Krzysztof Duda, and Leinier Dominguez, who complicated his game against Alexander Grischuk and let time trouble do the rest! That means five matches go to tiebreaks.
