Two draws on Thursday

On Thursday it was not for everyone a quiet day. Two games where played: Ólafsson – Cramling and Conquest – Arakhamia. The first game ended in an early draw. In the second game matters where really complicated. White did try to find an edge, but the Black defence does hold. At the moment that a draw could be expected white advanced his pawn and sacrificed his knight (52. Nxf5). But after 56.. Ne7 Black was just in time.
