Apr-28-08  toastie: Fide notes

"Although this new tournament series is experimenting with more anti-drawing measures than just the Sofia rule, the Petroff Defence is still allowed. It served Wang Yue well, who drew his Black game with Radjabov comfortably. With 19…Bf5 he improved upon the recent game Ganguly-Neelotpal. Radjabov thought he lost his advantage with 28.Ba6, and said he should probably have preferred Kf1 there. Wang Yue suggested 26.Rec1 followed by Kf1, but Radjabov didn't believe it'd be much for White."

Jul-26-08  nummerzwei: I agree that this game is nothing special or unusual - just another hard- fought draw in the main line of the Petrov.

More remarkable is the fact that both players were born on exactly the same day (12 March 1987) according to their biographies on this website!
