In what is surely the most exciting of any Nakamura-Carlsen encounter, this one had more twists than an M. Night Shyamalan movie. It seemed for a while that the American could win on the f- g- or h-file, despite getting creamed on the b-file. The tactics are mind-boggling, but luckily IM Danny Rensch and former World Junior Champion GM Alexander Ipatov are working overtime! Did Nakamura find his way and defeat Carlsen for the first time ever in Classical chess?
