Thereafter it was really only a question of how long it would take Svidler to win. In some ways this was the least interesting of the round three games as it was a victory for better opening preparation, and there was nothing particularly exciting to see on the board. It might have been more interesting had Teimour decided to go passive and sweat it out but that is not in his nature. (He may have to learn it if he is to fulfil his ambition of becoming world champion.) But full marks to Peter for having done the best homework and gaining what looked like an effortless victory.
