Magnus med remi mot Wang Hao

Magnus skriver på bloggen sin:
Against Wang Hao today I was really struggling after the opening. It was difficult to develop my light squared bishop, and Be7 was a clearly inaccurate. I had planned Rd8 followed by Be7 but mistakenly thought Be7 first was better. Wang, who has had a rather poor tournament so far, kept the initiative through the middle game. I had to defend rather passively until he played Nc6. By this time I think he had seen the variation occurring in the game where I finally could activate my rooks to reach a drawn ending. Maybe he felt his advantage was slipping anyhow and just wanted to finish the game.
