On the second day of the Khanty-Mansiysk Grand Prix, the series leader Evgeny Tomashevsky missed a chance to take a large step towards the Candidates tournament, when he missed a clear win against Alexander Grischuk.

As at the Tbilisi stage three months ago, Grischuk played the King's Indian against him. Just as he lost last time, so this game too went badly for Grischuk. "Different people have different abilities", said Alexander at the press conference. "For example, some people can't write sonnets. I can't play the King's Indian. Mind you, I can't write sonnets either..." 

TOMASHEVSKY - GRISCHUK

The last few moves up to the time control were played in great mutual time-trouble, thanks to the fact that the tournament is using a time control without increments, something which will be abolished starting from the next cycle. 
39.Qxf7+ (Even "stronger" is 39.Qxd6) 39...Rxf7
Tomashevsky "Here I had four seconds and played the first move I thought of: 40.Be3?
After 40.Rg8+ Kd7 41.Rxa6 the game would probably have ended at once. 
40...Nc5 41.Rg8+ Kd7 42.Ra8 Rb7 43.Bxc5 A practical decision. Even long thought was not enough for Evgeny to assess the variation 43.Bg5!? Rf1+ 44.Kc2 Rf2+ 45.Kd1 Ne6 46.dxe6+ Kxc6 47.e7 Rxe7 48.Bxe7 Rxb2 49.Rxa5.
43...dxc5 44.Rxc5? But this is the decisive slip. He keeps good winning chances with 44.b3! For example, 44...Rf1+ 45.Kc2 Rf2+ 46.Kd3 Rh2 47.Rxa5 etc.
44...Rf1+ 45.Rc1 Rxc1+ 46.Kxc1 b3 47.a3 Rc7+ 48.Kd2 Rc2+, and on move 74, with only kings left on the board, the players shook hands. 1/2

"It is hard to explain rationally why I didn't win, - smiled Tomashevsky. - But such things happen in sport: yesterday I played terribly, but got the whole point, whilst today I played what may have been one of my best games, but could not convert it". 

In the only decisive game today, Lenier Dominguez beat Dmitry Jakovenko. As of today, the scores in the overall GP look like this:
