Alexadner Grischuk gained his first point in the Superfinal

An important result has been registered in Round 7 of the men's Superfinal: Alexander Grischuk has outplayed Dmitry Andreikin and caught the recent leader. The winner told about his game at the press conference.

The position from Gashimov - Radjabov, Wijk-aan-Zee 2012 took place in the encounter. "Vugar made a terrible move 12.Nf2 and lost the game, - Grischuk said. - and after 12.exf6 Nxf6 13.Nxf6+ Bxf6 14.0-0 black stands very uncomfortable. It should either play 14...Ba6, then it has problem with the activation of the pieces, or black should try 14...0-0, then it already can't play Ba6 and after 15.Be3 the d7-pawn is under threat.

Andreikin preferred the first opportunity. As Grischuk noted black didn't get that bad position, however, from a practical point of view it was still very hard to play. The fact is that black stood almost lost to move 23.

In the exclusive commentary given to our website Grischuk explained that after  9...Qa5+ he started to think and remember all the variants: there are a lot of them in this line of Sicilian defence. "But it turned out that I knew more that Dmitry although I spent more time on thinking than him."

Grischuk also confessed that he has been playing for a win in all 7 games, but his attempts were successful only today.
