Tal Memorial: Gelfand Stopped Unsuccessful Chain of Losses

Boris Gelfand – Pate Svidler decided to finish their game peacefully in the 4th round of Tal Memorial. White grabbed initiative in the middle of the game by gaining quite enough compensation for a pawn, which means draw can be considered as Svidler’с success. Thus, Gelfand stopped unsuccessful chain of losses.

At the press-conference Svidler criticized his choice 12.Rd1, which allowed pawn sacrifice 12…c5.

After 17…Rb8! Svidler had already “understood everything” and was concerned “not to lose quickly”.
