World Cup: Karjakin Close to Candidates, But Kramnik Misses a Win

Today Sergey Karjakin was close to the Candidates tournament as never before. Vladimir Kramnik outplayed Maxime Vachier-Lagrave in a tough fight and was in one step or rather one move to the final of the World Cup. (Why Karjakin would care about Kramnik's result is described here).

KRAMNIK - VACHIER-LAGRAVE

Only one line led White to win in this position: 62.Nd7! Rf5 63.Rf8+ Kg6 64.Rg8+ Kf7 (или 64...Kh7) 65.Ke4! Russian GM missed exactly this move in his calculations.
65...Ra5 66.Nf6 and Black has no chance.

The move Kramnik chose 62.Ke4, as well as any other continuation, could only guarantee a draw. Maxime confidently moved the position to the rook vs. rook and knight endgame - 50 moves made afterwards didn't help Kramnik to win. 


The expression the former world champion had for about 30 seconds when finding a win was already impossible

Noteworthy is that both players considered White to be winning up to 62nd move, however, none saw the exact way for winning. As Kramnik noted at the press center, "This is a known phenomena - If Maxime would see how he losses, I would also see it." Kramnik then added that frankly speaking the position was close to a draw most of the time. 

Thus, the finalists will be determined on tiebreaks which are scheduled to take place tomorrow at 15:00 CET.
