Chess World Cup Final Game 1: Vladimir Kramnik beats Dmitry Andreikin
The game started as a Queen's Gambit Declined in which Andreikin played cautiously only allowing the former world champion to take a grip on the game. In an almost equal position, Kramnik went for a Queen sacrifice picking up a rook and bishop while pressurising Black with a passed pawn. Black was in a bind particularly because of back-rank problems. Kramnik had no problems converting to a win in a Two Rooks versus Queen endgame.
