Tomashevsky won the "greatest match he ever played"

The 1/8 final match between Tomashevsky and Morozevich or rather the playoff can definitely be described as hilarous. The return blitz game 10+10 will be remembered much like Ivanchuk - Leko of 2007 (Tal Memorial), while "I can´t find moves...ehh, I mean words" should become a catchphrase.

Eight games were needed to determine the winner of the match: two classical games, two with 25+10 time control, other two with 10+10 and two more blitz games 5+3; overall 511 moves. 169 of those moves were made in the blitz return game (10+10). At that point Tomashevsky was black needing only a win. He chose Caro-Kann quite unexpectidly (Chessbase database offers only three games in which Tomashevsky played 1...c6 and all of them are from 2013). He then hurried to gain some advantages. The game went through several complicated stages, in the hardest of those - the queen endgame with an extra pawn - Evgeny had to secure himself from the perpetual check.   

After this loss Alexander Morozevich couldn't recover and lost the very following game; he was close to losing the 8th game as well, but his opponent stopped on a draw missing one move mate in the end.

Take a look at all eight games of the match.

Tomashevsky went to the press room after the match. "The greatest match I´ve ever played," he exclaimed. One of the few things he managed to say before asking to release him from giving commentaries; tomorrow he will face Gata Kamsky who is awaiting for him for more than a day.
