The last but one round of London Classic was marked by a calm draw in Anand – Carlsen encounter. 

A painfully familiar (remember Kasparov – Karpov matches) Queen’s Gambit took place in this face-off.

After 16.Qc2 Rab8 Anand tried not a very successful and rare move 17.Rfc1?!, which brought Black a comfortable position.

This draw deprived the World Champion any chances to be among top-three winners – the task he, maybe, hasn't even set before the tournament.
