Lots of action today in Berlin!
Nakamura won a great game against the young Russian GM Andrey Esipenko. Bacrot had the upper hand in his games versus Grischuk, but the Frenchman could not find a way to concretize his advantage and had to settle for a draw. Now in Pool A Nakamura leads with 1.5 points.
In Pool B Wojtaszek, who had won yesterday, was on the brink of scoring two out of two, but Oparin defended strenuously, and the game ended in a draw.
Rapport bounced back after losing yesterday's game and defeated Fedoseev in an interesting battle.
In Pool C the four players drew their game, leaving the standings unchanged.
In pool D Harikrishna and So drew, and Shirov lost to Dominguez.
