"This was a terrible game from both sides, - Grischuk evaluated his encounter against Kasimdzhanov in Round 10 of the Grand Prix London. - I spent too much time, I don't even know on what and then I started to do some stupid things like taking on d5 with the rook... I could probably finish the game before, however, after 27...Rxd5 white gained some good chances to draw. On move 38 I  tried to commit a hara-kiri: I just could repeat the moves several times and play for a win with an extra pawn, but after time control it turned out that I could already lose... Fortunately, it somehow turned into a draw."

Rustam Kasimdzanov: "As long as the main reason of why I lost against Nakamura and Mamedyarov was the time trouble, today I tried to play quickly. As Sasha said he started playing inaccurately close to the time control and he already started experiencing the time trouble. After move 40 I understood that the rook endgame was completely OK for me, however, I didn't even think about the win. After thinking two minutes I played 41.Rge4 and then I understood that if I have played 41.Rh4 Black could just resign [it seems that Rustam overestimates White's chances: the position stays equal - CN]. I didn't deserve victory, so the result is logical. I'm still motivated to get 50% of points, however it will be hard to play black against Boris tomorrow..."
