Both semifinals games were drawn. Playing with white against Gata Kamsky, Magnus Carlsen surprisingly chose a Scotch Game. Having gained no advantage of the opening, the Norwegian Grandmaster was about to end up with an inferior position but managed to equalize the game. The match between the brilliant tacticians and excellent experts of the Sicilian Defense Alexei Shirov and Sergey Karjakin was exciting. It looked like playing with white Alexei seized an initiative but his nimble opponent succeeded to defend in the endgame with minimum loss.
