Kramnik in the light and in the shadow

Kramnik's victory against Aronian was amazing. In the beginning it looked like equal. Pieces were exchanged one after one. Then the knight sacrifice was great. The power of the pawns with the pins were more than enough for the knight.

 



In the next game Vladimir found himself on the other side of the light. Nakamura beat Kramnik in an interesting game. Kramnik made a positional exchange sacrifice, then Nakamura attacked his king and forced exchanges to a better endgame. Then the endgame was fascinating. Kramnik again had pawns versus piece. 3 connected passed pawns. Nakamura blocked them all and his passed pawn arrived to the queening square and actually transformed to a knight to give a check and win the endgame! Well done Hikaru!
