Round 10 of the super GM tournament is still under way in Biel. Wang Hao not just finished his game earlier than others, but he achieved the main aim - gained a three points by beating one of his main rivals. 

WANG HAO - Anish GIRI
Biel, Round 10

Grunfeld defence
1.Nf3 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 d5 4.Qa4+ Bd7 5.Qb3 dxc4 6.Qxc4 a6 7.d4 b5 8.Qb3 c5 9.dxc5 Bg7 10.e4 0-0 11.Be2 Be6 12.Qc2 Nbd7 13.Be3 Rc8 14.Rd1 b4 15.Nd5 Bxd5 16.exd5 Nxc5

17.0-0 a5 18.Bb5 Nce4 19.Bc6 Qc7N According to the database, this is a novelty. Several times was played 19...Nd6.
20.Rc1 Nd6 21.Qe2 Nf5

This position including the moves Ng4 and Re1 took place in practice. In any case, Wang Hao made the next move quite quickly , which means that he perhaps prepared it during analysis. 
22.Bc5 The computer doesn't see this move. Now Anish turned on the thinking mode.
22...Bh6 is not spoiling anything from the first sight, but probably 22...Rfd8 looks more natural; this was Giri's next move.
23.Rc2 Rfd8 24.Rd1

24...e6? It seems like this is a mistake. Instead black could have moved its bishop from f4 or d6 - with a playable, a bit more comfortable position for white.  
25.dxe6! It turned out that taking on e6 is possible!
25...Rxd1+ In case of 25...Qxc6 white wins: 26.exf7+ Kh8 27.Rxd8+ Rxd8 28.Be7 Nxe7 29.Rxc6 Nxc6 30.g4!
26.Qxd1 fxe6 And here 26...Qxc6: 27.exf7+ Kh8 28.Bd4 Nxd4 29.Rxc6 Nxc6 doesn't work. The piece compensation for black is just an optimistic illusion: 30.Qd6! Bg7 31.f8Q+ Rxf8 32.Qxc6 с решающим перевесом.
27.Ba4 Qd8? The decisive mistake in a tough position. The fight could be continued by playing 27...Qb7.
28.Qe2 Ng7 29.Ne5 Ne4 30.Nc6 Rxc6 31.Bxc6 Nxc5 32.Rxc5 1-0

Now Wang Hao is waiting for the result in Carlsen - Giri encounter. Magnus needs only win for taking the first place.
