In the final position, Bacrot lost on time in a drawish looking pawn down endgame.

Gata Kamsky defeated the French GM Etienne Bacrot with Black in the second game of their six-game match at the Candidates Matches in Elista, Russia (May 25-June 14) The first game was a draw. The candidates matches consist of two rounds of six-game matches, with the top four finishers qualifying to the World Championship in Mexico City. Each match has a $40,000 prize fund.

Here is Gata's second round win. He was up a pawn in a drawish looking endgame when Etienne flagged.
