Another game of Round 5 of the Grand Prix London has finished in a draw. Wang Hao managed to surprise Kasimdzhanov in the Moscow variation of Slav defence. 



Kasimdzhanov: "So, it was a very unusual opening, I've never seen 8.Nе5 concept in this position before and I was worrying that I could be slowly tortured."

Actually this move is not a novelty, although it was played only several times. Among those who played it are Anton Korobov and Dmitri Bocharov. 

"I didn't like the position which was on the board, - Kasimdzhanov confessed. - And then I came up with the sacrifice of the pawn; otherwise it would be stably worse for black. It became comfortable to play after the sacrifice. I even though that maybe I had some initiative, but then we've exchanged the pieces and there was a draw."
