Number one versus number two at the 2013 U.S. Championship! Need more incentive? New U.S. GM Timur Gareev allows a 2750 to get two queens, yet Gareev is the one playing for mate! GM Gata Kamsky was pressured early, then took over the seventh rank. Gareev, saying he had "nothing to lose" threw all his remaining pieces at Kamsky. Who's idea was stronger?
