Round 9 of the Grand Prix London brought a very important result - Alexander Grischuk beat Boris Gelfand. The winner talked to our correspondent Maria Yurenok after the game. 

"Today it was my last chance to enter the fight for the first place, that's why I, of course, tried to fight. It's always hard to struggle against the preparation set up for the World Championship match. I tried to play more or less rare system, however, recently Vallejo has played it against Boris at the Olympiad. I managed to get an unusual, promising position and I was very glad: white had an initiative, black should defend. My rival went on a forced variant on move 17 and he probably miscalculated...

...if Boris hadn't take here 22...Qxd2, but made castling, I would probably give 40% for winning and 60% for a draw (you could give some winning chances to Black if you really wish)."

This is how the game ended: 23.Bxe6 fxe6 24.Rxe6+ Kd7 25.Qg4 Kc7 26.Qc4+ Kd7 27.Qa4+ Kd8 28.Qxa6 Kd7 29.Qb5+ Kd8 30.Re8+ 1-0
