A real fighting draw took place in London Grand Prix round 7 between Giri and Grischuk. An unusual skirmish started after Grischuk made an ordinary move in Paulsen variation of the Sicilian defence



Giri told about the game that followed: "It seems I've chosen a wrong plan to play on the queenside because his bishop was useful. I thought it would lead to some slight advantage but it was far from any advantage though. At some moment I let him take my pawn on b2 - I thought he wouldn't because he only had few minutes to make 20 moves and the position was quite a tough one. I had some hopes to overplay him in this situation but he made a couple of good moves and I went worse. In the end I equalized the game before the time control as it usually happens in such cases".

Grischul had to assume that he had problems in time trouble so he finds that such a draw is quite fair.
