  whiteshark: From the tournament bulletin:

Lots of theory quickly led to an almost equal position, and after many exchanges the resulting rook ending was dead drawn.

Cheparinov felt he had some advantage: "But he played well and then I didn't find the best moves to keep the pressure."

Kamsky called it "kind of a forced line" [they had followed the recent game Sargissian-Hou Yifan, Mérida 2008 until 21.Rac1]

and after 21…a5 it wasn't so easy for White to get an advantage."

Shipov liked this pawn move, a novelty, which solved Black's opening problems immediately. "By advancing the pawn the American GM destroyed the queenside and got excellent counterplay. I couldn't find any improvements for White afterwards."
