Sergey Karjakin drew Wesley So in Round 7 of Tata Steel Chess and is half a point behind the leader Levon Aronian. 



"The game is interesting first of all because I suddenly didn't want to play an absolutely equal position," Sergey recalls. "After 24.Ne1 I only had to play 24...R2c6 and agree on a draw after several moves. Instead I sacrificed an exchange: 24...Bxg2?! Actually it wouldn't be a bad sacrifice if he hasn't played 27.Be7 after 24...Bxg2 25.Nxc2 Rxc2 26.Kxg2 Ne4. For instance, 27.Bb4 - then I could take on f2 and bring the other knight on f6... At least I don't risk anything. After 27.Be7 I understood that I chose a silly plan and now I had to fight for a draw. Fortunately I found 27...b5. I risk to lose in other lines...."
