Another cheapo draw

Another addition to the collection of cheapo draws that the peacefully inclined player should know. This is from the current Russian Championship and ended, like all good cheapo draws do, in a draw by repetition. Once White takes on c6 with the queen, the repetition is forced, and both players had the rest off the day off.

Just another example of GM's showing why they get free entries. How do games like this really show why GM's are the best players in the world?
