Jun-13-07  Petrosian63: Grischuk too good.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Peligroso Patzer: This was the first tie-break game played earlier today to determine the winner of their match to select a qualifier for the WC tournament in Mexico. The time control was G/25+10 (Game in 25 minutes with 10-second increment). Grischuk won both his games with Black to prevail in the tie-break by 2.5 to 0.5.
Jun-14-07  somitra: Rublevski could have drawn the game with 15 exQ. Then black did not have anything other than perpetual.
Jun-14-07  Raginmund: am I wrong or Grischuk had to eliminate two Russian??

I don't know what happened to Rublevski in this match (of course, Grisc... played too well)... I want to know where was his lively playing style.
