Grischuk - Rublevsky

Grischuk made an interesting exchange sacrifice on move 18. Although the position offer dynamics balance for both side white position is more prefered side to play.

* It looks like my statistic yesterday - was quite close with today's result accept that Shirov manage to beat Aronian and level their personal encounter ( corrections- Aronian beat Shirov so my statistic is almost perfect!) .
