Eljanov and So sign a quick draw at Reykjavik

Eljanov - So

The Reykjavik Open is coming to an end. Pavel Eljanov and Wesley So arrived to the last round as leaders and did not take long to sign a draw – it took them just 3 moves. All we can say about the game is that So had prepared the Grunfeld against 1.d4.

The players decided to go for a share of the first prize instead of risking losing it all. There are six players that might catch up with them.
