IM Gnaburits forges ahead 1.5-0.5 in the 2nd match game (best of 4) with excellent opening preparation.After establishing a clear advantage following the hammer blows 21.f5! and 23.d6!!, Katz had no chance despite messing things up following his piece sacrifice as Gnaburits defended accurately and cleverly liquidated into a winning double rook plus knight vs queen ending.
One more win suffices for Gnaburits to become the 2014 World Mind Games Champion so Game 3 tomorrow is critical for Katz.
