Yesterday in Tbilisi, long time favorite of this blog, Vladislav Artemiev, took out Teimur Radjabov in the rapid playoff for round two to advance in the World Cup.
In the first rapid game he put on a clinic in demonstrating how to play with a space advantage.
In the second game, Artemiev was easily winning when he agreed a draw. A decision which makes perfect sense as it allowed him to advance.
