Kasimdzhanov and Dominguez played the Berlin Defence in round 4 of the London Grand Prix start part. 

When the grandmaster from Uzbekistan got some advantage after 5.Re1, people in the press center started joking that his play is the key to overtake in the opening recently known as one of the safest.  

After the game Dominguez said that he was a bit surprised with his opponent's first move (Kasimdzhanov already played 1.e4 in the first round of the competition). "That's why I decided to knock him down with the Berlin system, said the Cuban, but that didn't work well enough: I got a very passive position. I think that the most interesting thing in the game was a bishop endgame. White is a bit better there and it's quite inteesting to know whether this is enough for a win? I don't think so. I thought that despite some bad pawn structure the position is still a draw".
