26 Sep 2012, Kuala Lumpur – All six games ended in a draw at the FIDE Grand Prix London 2012, round 5. Today is a rest day for the tournament. Round 6 will resume play on the 27 Sep 2012.
The official website reported that for the third time in the tournament, Giri is playing the Petrov’s defence. Adams surprised his opponent already after the 8th move, obliging the young Dutch prodigy to spend more than 20 minutes on his reply. Finally, Adams went for the usual long castling and actually had nothing significant out of the opening. Anish equalized and methodically exchanged the rooks on the “e” file, entering into a bishop endgame. Draw.
