Dmitry Andreikin held Vladimir Kramnik to a draw with black in the third game of the FIDE World Cup in Tromso and will have a final chance with white on Monday to take the game into a day of tie-breaks.

Kramnik played fairly quietly against Andreikin's Chebanenko Slav and 8...Bb4 was a novelty even if it was not an entirely surprising one. Kramnik played for a tiny controlled advantage but after 12.Qxd8 exchanging queens the game was already close to a draw. Kramnik had hopes for 15.Na4 but a precise series of moves from Andreikin led to a totally drawn ending on move 27.
