London: Carlsen Defeats Nakamura in a Crashing Manner


In the 3rd round of London Classic one of the leaders Kramnik had bye, while two other leaders of the tournament faced each other. Nakamura’с position stayed acceptable for quite a long тайм, but ultimately the struggle ended in a devastative attack of White.

As Nakamura explained he had miscalculated the sacrifice of the exchange and that was the reason why he played 29…Rfb8 – which, at that point, seemed a logical move for him. 

At the press-conference the rivals analysed 34…Qg6, which was leaving White practical chances in a worse position. White could have replied 25.d5.

Nakamura мейд a mistake 34…Ra8?  instead, which led White to a quick лосс.
