Ivan Cheparinov and Peter Leko starts the 2009 Fide Grand Prix at Jermuk with a wins. This put their opponent Jakovenko and Inarkiev to temporary zero point. While ten more players in 1/2 points as every other game is a draw. But round 1 did not looks like a boring draw start with all the games went to 30 up moves. The shortest was Kasimdzhanov - Karjakin in 32 moves but the last position of Q+K vs Q+B with less possible move lead to victory for both side. Gelfand - Eljanov is a repetition check by White to compensate because White is R+R vs R+R+K.
