  Gilmoy: Slavlocked pawns. Black allows <26.Bd6> when it's toothless, and just plays around it, with some annoying K-side pressure. Grischuk seemed a bit uninspired in resolving all the pawn tension away. White does make a token effort <35.Bd1 36.Be2 39.Qb3> to threaten Bxa6 and push b7, but actually it's just a cute tempo for <41.Qd1> and some K-side probing.

<43.Qg1> is Grischuk's Popgun: looks great, less threatening. Black did well to squeeze all the danger out of every position.

  Fusilli: Often, one weakness, or one type of advantage alone, is not enough. GMs generally manage to exploit weaknesses or space advantage to force the opponent to place his pieces in suboptimal places, and then they strike elsewhere on the board. But here, with the queenside closed, it became impossible for Grischuk to break in.
