The game between Topalov and Kasimdzhanov of Round 3 of the Grand Prix London lasted for less than 2 hours. The opponents agreed to draw on move 37 after a threefold repetition. The result of the encounter was clear even earlier due to the novelty applied by Kasimdzhanov of Uzbekistan.



Rustam told about that in a commentary given to our website:
"In general I'm well prepared for the opening stage of the game. 12...с5 -is a novelty, however, it seems that a lot of spectators as well as my opponent knew about it. I just showed analyses and the game finished in a draw. We didn't spend much time on thinking today."

Veselin Topalov also commented on the uality of the move 12...c5. "It's an obious draw there, too many exchanges, but this happens - this is modern chess..."
