In one of the "games-twins" (identical until 19th move) from the fourth round of the Russian Team Championship, Black has already reached a draw. It was Peter Svidler who managed to do that.

КARJAKIN ("Тomsk-400") - SVIDLER ("The Federation of St.Petersburg")
The Grunfeld Defence
1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 d5 4.Nf3 Bg7 5.Qb3 dxc4 6.Qxc4 O-O 7.e4 a6 8.Be2 b5 9.Qb3 c5 10.dxc5 Be6 11.Qc2 Nbd7 12.Be3 Rc8 13.Rd1 b4 14.Nd5 Bxd5 15.exd5 Nxc5 16.O-O Nce4 17.Qb1 Nd6 18.Rfe1 Qa5 19.Nd4 Qxd5

In the match of the leaders "Economist" vs. "SHSM-64", in the game Morozevich - Caruana, 20.Bf3 was played (look further below).
20...Qe4 21.Nxd6 Qxb1 22.Rxb1 exd6 23.Bxa6 Rc7 24.a4 bxa3 25.bxa3 Ra8 26.Rb3 Nd7 27.Be2 Rc3 28.Rxc3 Bxc3 29.Rd1 Rxa3 30.Rxd6 Ra1+ 31.Rd1 Rxd1+ 32.Bxd1

A draw due to the exhaustion of resources.

But in the second of today's games on this subject, which is still under way, Black has some tough problems to solve.

(The beginning of the game is the same as in Karjakin vs. Svidler).

20.Bf3 Qe5 21.Nc6 Rxc6 22.Bxc6 Ng4 23.g3 Qh5 24.h4 Nxe3 25.Rxe3 Qc5 26.Be4 Qb6 27.a4 Rc8 28.Re2

White has the long-term advantage, although Black still has hopes of a favourable outcome.
