In his brief commentary given after the 9th round game against Pentala Harikrishna, Sergey Karjakin noted he "hasn't got much to say":"Basically the game was very clean. Probably he played a good novelty 13...f6, I made all the logical moves but then it was just a draw."

Pentala Harikrishna on his turn remembered when he prepared the mentioned novelty: "Well, Sergey played in a similar way as against GM Kramnik [in 2001] and the only difference is the inclusion of pawns a2-a4 and a7-a5. [...] Last year I played the same kind of position here in Wijk aan Zee in Group B against Alexander Motylev.[...] I prepared ...f6 probably 1.5 year ago." Listen to Indian GM's commentary at full:
