FM Kavutskiy brings the yin and the yang today - a positional masterpiece and a tactical melee. GMs Aronian and Nakamura were the two winners. Can you guess who played which game? OK enough with the easy questions. Watch Aronian prove that the bishop pair is not the final word. Nakamura shows that he is still at least as creative at the young GM Rapport. An unexpected sacrifice comes out of nowhere - how often do you see Nxd5, Nxe3, Nxc2 on three consecutive moves in the opening? Wow!
