  whiteshark: From the tournament bulletin:

After about 2,5 hours the first game of the day finished: Cheparinov-Gashimov.

Without preparation, Gashimov had come up with a very interesting novelty (8...f5) in an important line of the Nimzo-Indian – quite an amazing achievement already! ("I just wanted to play something new" - VG). White got a small advantage, but it wasn't very much.

With some accurate manoeuvres (17…Bxd5!, 19…Nd7!, 22…Qe7!) Black reached a very solid position and was ready to attack White's weak pawn on c3, but 23.Bc6! was very strong.

"Then I had nothing to play for," Gashimov said. White didn't have anything either, so what to do then, at the Grand Prix?

"At the end we had to go for that stupid threefold repetition," was Cheparinov's clear answer.
