After two losses in a row, Russian GM Karjakin, managed to beat Giri in the third round of Wijk aan Zee Super-GM tournament.

On the fifth move of the French Defence Black chose an extremely rare move 5...Qxc5, which was played by Morozevich against Timofeev in the last year's Russian Premier League. 

The novelty took place already on the eighth move. Black couldn't deal with the difficulties in the opening and got a worse position. In Karjakin's opinion, Giri made a mistake by playing 20...f5, which has weakened Black's kingside appreciably. Russian gradually increased pressure and finally converted his advantage into a point.
