The name of the first finalist has become known after the second game and that is Gata Kamsky, the 33 year old Grandmaster from USA. Having drawn his first game against Carlsen, he beat him in the second game in excellent style. Slowly increasing his advantage, he forced his 17 year old opponent to resign on the 43rd move. Magnus looked upset but not depressed, even though it was obvious that this two week marathon and especially the last two rounds in which he played against Adams and Cheparinov drew all his energy away.
The Shirov-Karjakin match was like a survival race. In the first game Alexei had an advantage but Sergei managed to make a draw. The second game looked absolutely the opposite, the young Ukrainian Grandmaster had a big positional advantage but the Spanish opponent succeeded to equalize the position with a series of accurate moves. The game ended in a draw.
Shirov and Karjakin play a tie-break today. And Kamsky who has already qualified for the final will get a long-awaited day off.
