  whiteshark: "A very tense game. Ivanchuk flashed a new opening idea (<11…Na5!?>) in a well-known sharp line of the Gruenfeld. He gave up a central pawn, but this was a Danae gift. White accepted the sacrifice, and then had to use all his creativity to survive.

The crowd admired a number of tactical tricks by both players. For instance, everyone was surprised by <15.Bf3!>

with the idea e2-e4. White got rid of a nasty pin, but he didn’t have any advantage.

The further simplifications could not alter the evaluation of the position as being equal. The grandmasters ceased fire in a deadly drawn ending."
