Today was played the first round of the International Chess Tournament in Gibraltar, in which we can find a lot of top players like : Ivanchuk, Kamsky,Adams,Navarra,Short,Vachier-Lagrave,Wojtaszek,Shirov and others.

There were a lot of surprises , especially in the first two chessboards, Ivanchuk and Kamsky were stopped on the draw.

Was very interesting the game between Aerni Andreas against Gata Kamsky

I think that the white chose an interesting line against Bd7, e6 !? is an interesting solution, it ins't easy see how exploit the pawn more for the black

    Looks like Kamsky's opponent caught him on a nice home prep -- possibly all the way to the end of the game; it seems more or less forced.

    Interesting, I was surprised Ivanchuk drew so early, against a 2200 you would expect him to go all out to try for a win.
