Extract:
"A reasonably quick draw, the first of the round, was reached in Wang Yue-Adams. They played a theoretical line of a Queen's/Nimzo Indian hybrid in which Black gives a pawn for structural compensation.

15...0-0-0 was a strong novelty by Adams, and it looks like after today the theoretical status of this line is "fine for Black". "He played very well," Wang Yue said, "Rh8-f8-f5 was a good idea and my only chance was a draw today."

Adams had also thought about doubling the rooks via f7/f6 but then "White defends his f-pawn with e3-e4 and Ra1-d1-d3. Black is only playing for a draw there."

Wang Yue added that it gives White the possibility of e4-e5. In the game he realised that despite his plus pawn he was slightly worse, and by throwing down the superfluous ballast and activating his king with 27.f4! he secured the draw."
