Wijk Aan Zee: First Decisive result — Ivanchuk Losses Against Gelfand

After almost four hours of play Vassily Ivanchuk with White lost against Gelfand in Round 11 of Wijk aan Zee tournament. Perhaps, White could fight for some advantage with 12.Bf4!?, however, Ivanchuk'с choice 12.Bb4 allowed White to equalize. 

IVANCHUK — GELFAND (after 21…Qc8)

Ivanchuk'с defeat in an equal, almost symmetrical position  was proparly caused by Ukrainian General Motors'с lost sense of danger during the game.  As a result soon Vassily got a losing endgame.
