Sergey Karjakin has scored his first victory in the Baku tournament.

The Russian GM chose a very calm opening line and then managed to outplay Leinier Dominguez in a slightly better endgame.

During the press conference both Karjakin and Dominguez disapproved of the time control. "It is the most absurd time control I've ever met in my practice", said one of them, and the other agreed.

The time control used in Baku (as well as in the FIDE Grand Prix on the whole) is 120'/40+60'/20+(15'+30") which means that there is no increment till move 61. The one who suffered from that today was Alexander Grischuk who lost on time at move 60 - see our coming reports for the details.

Let us remind you that ACP had surveyed the top GMs during the previous Grand Prix series and most of them had voted for another time control. However, their opinions were disregarded by the organizers.
