Dmitry Jakovenko and Sergey Karjakin drew in Round 6 of the men's Superfinal held in Moscow. They shred the impressions on their game with our correspondent Elena Klimets. 

"I really tired of facing unexpected openings in this competition, - Jakovenko confessed. The same was in this game. If I could supose that Najdorf would be played, I was completely surprised by the move 6...Ng4 on my Be3. So, I chose the variant which minimized risk for white and if you are eliminating any risk when playing against a strong opponent, then you're also not risking to win."

"As opposed to Berlin I chose a very fighting opening today, - Karjakin explained. -  The position was equal and at some point we just started to repeat the moves."
