Gelfand - Giri of Round 8 of the Grand Prix London went with white's evident advantage. However, it's quite hard to say where exactly Israeli player has missed the win (if it was that clear) without analysis. 

"Perhaps, I was winning somewhere, - Gelfand shrugged his shoulders. - However, finding the way to win wasn't an easy job."  

"I'm sure that Boris could win the middlegame, - Giri said. - At some point he missed a great part of his advantage (Giri probably meant the part from 36th to 40th moves - CN). I already thought it would be as in my game against Kramnik, when I lost in 30 moves. So, when we went on playing with different colored bishops, I already thought I could hold. Closer to the time control my opponent lost his advantage and after exchanging rooks it was already a draw."
