In round five, Adhiban put an end to this conversation. He beat Sergey Karjakin! He did not lose another game through the rest of the tournament and finished tied for third place with Wei Yi and Levon Aronian.
He might have finished even stronger. In round eleven, he reached this position against Magnus Carlsen, who finished the tournament in second place.
Black to move
The game ended in a draw. Can you find the combination that Adhiban missed?
