The Week-in-chess website reported that Vladimir Kramnik comfortably held Dmitry Andreikin to a draw in the final game of the FIDE World Cup in Tromso to win the match 2.5-1.5. Andreikin played what turned out to be a Symmetrical English and did manage to generate an imbalance but never seemed seriously worse. Improvements for Andreikin should be sought around move 15-16 (maybe 15.Re1!?). 18.Ne2 was complicated but all the complications seem in black's favour. Andreikin remained reasonably confident until 26...Qd6 after which he suddenly understood he was in trouble. Andreikin offered a draw on move 34 which was almost immediately accepted. Kramnik was much better but there was enough in the position to take the match win straight away.
