3rd Sinquefield Cup - Round 6 recap

Opening: E99: King's Indian

Player(s): So, Nakamura

GM Ronen Har-Zvi recaps Round 6. It's not something you see so often in super-GMs games, but we had the luck to witness a checkmate on the board today, in the 6th round of the Sinquefield Cup. There were two very interesting games to follow today; all the games are important and entertaining at this level, but So-Nakamura and Aronian-Carlsen were the top two games, for various reasons. Carlsen and Aronian, the two co-leaders, could have given the tournament a serious yank, had one of them won the game. They drew, and quite uneventfully. Nakamura and So are both Americans now and, at least over the board, today's game was to be considered a derby. So is not having his best tournament, but today Nakamura played a great game, taking advantage of any and all the chances his younger rival gave him. And So was a true sport, allowing Nakamura to play his unstoppable attack till the very end, with checkmate on the board at move 39, after an amazing King's hunt. Now Nakamura follows the two leaders by a half point, together with Giri and MVL. Vachier-Lagrave today beat Topalov in 37 moves, confirming his great state of form. Veselin, after an impressive start, has lost two games in a row, and now is a full point from the top. Grischuk beat Caruana, whose performance is probably one of the lowest in recent years. Giri and Anand drew.
