Bacrot - Morozevich encounter was first to finish in the GM super-tournament held in Biel. A tense struggle took place in the Triangle system of the Marshall (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c6 4.e4). The Russian avoided theory on move 10 and in another 11 moves French applied a "drastic resource."


Black has just made a long castling. 21.Bxc6 has followed. Morozevich responded 21...bxc6, although it was the only variant which wasn't losing. After 22.Qxa7 Rxd6 white can have a perpetual check. 23.Qa8+ Kc7 24.Qa7+. 
21...Ba6? 22.Ng5! Nxg5? Loses immediately, but it should be mentioned that 22...Rxd6 also didn't save. 23.Rxd6 bxc6 24.Nxf7 Qxf4 25.Rxc6+ Kb7 26.Rxe6.
23.Bd7+! Kxd7 24.Qe7+ Kc6 25.Qc7+ 1-0

Here's how the Russian's position looked like several moves before it collapsed; now he is at the bottom of the table.
