World Chess Cup R7.2: Svidler-Grischuk draw; Ponomariov loses to Ivanchuk

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

The latest chess news from Khanty-Mansiysk is that in the second match of Round 7, Peter Svidler and Alexander Grischuk drew while Ruslan Ponomariov lost to Vassily Ivanchuk. The latter are playing for the third and fourth place while the former are playing, of course, for the title. Hope you're following the excellent live coverage at the official website. But all said and done, it's tough when you are playing against a friend or compatriot from the same country for a crucial title. You can find some very nice interviews by all the players and other press reports at the official website also. 

Here are the games of Round 7. Game 2 via the official website game links.
