  plang: This was a second consecutive draw in the second round match of the World Championship tournament; Ponomariov won the quick play games to clinch the match on route to winning the tournament. What started as an Accelerated Dragon transposed to the Classical Dragon after 8..d6. In the first quick play game Tiviakov tried 15..Qa5 and lost after interesting complications. 18 Nd5 was a new move; 18 Rhe1 and 18 g4 had been played in recent games. Perhaps White could have tried 22 Qc7..Bc6 23 Rd2 with pressure on the d-pawn.
