Gelfand - Ivanchuk encounter of Round 6 of the Grand Prix London finished in a draw. Both players agreed that the game turned out to be interesting, while Ukrainian gave the same definition to all his games in the competition. On a request to evaluate his chances in the tournament, Ivanchuk answered: "I'm optimistic, there still are 5 rounds to go..."

"I sacrificed the pawn having full compensation for it, but the alternatives could be found for both sides at every turn, - Gelfand said in the interview given to the official website. - It's hard to say where one could play better. It seems that we both played logically (well, computer may not agree). that was a good game." 

The draw was agreed after threefold on move 25, which also was quite logical.
