Richard Rapport and Dmitry Andreikin didn't go to the tiebreaks.
After an uneventful first classical game in the finals, today the second game was decisive, determining the winner of the 2nd leg of the FIDE Grand Prix 2022.
The second game seemed to go in the same direction as the first, with the players playing very carefully.
But this time they didn't exchange quickly all the pieces.
The center of the board saw a long battle for a pawn, which lead to a possible repetition.
But there, the game changed abruptly!
