"Something Went Wrong In My Brain..."

Wang Hao left Boris Gelfand as Grand Prix leader

You can see Wang Hao's face with a mark of a terrible shock: after a decisive and strange mistake he lost instead of making a draw just a few minutes ago.


Gelfand commented the game: "I won a pawn and I just don't know whether I could achieve something more than that. The position was 50-50 a win or a draw. But my opponent defended very well and there's a dead draw in the end. I found the last trap..."

You can see a trap already performed on the diagram: 55.Rd1. Some simple move like 55...Kf8 could make that very "dead draw". However the player from China played 55...Kh7??, and after 56.Kf7 stopped the clock.

Wang Hao: "I can say nothing, it was a simple blunder. Something should have happened with my brain. I somehow thought that g5 square is available for my king..."

Gelfand: "We played only two times with Wang Hao and both games are somewhat strange. In 2010 during Tal Memorial I gave up in a drawish position and now something strange has gone with my opponent..."

Boris Gelfand is a current sole leader of the competition.
