  aragorn69: On site report: <The third win of the day was posted by Sergey Karjakin who after a long struggle managed to defeat Predrag Nikolic. The Ukrainian top-seed had an edge all through the game, but it wasn’t clear if he was going to make substantial progress. With a pawn sacrifice he increased the tension and was paid for his investment when Nikolic erred on move 40. Instead of 40…Rh6, he went 40…Kf8, allowing 41.c7! which pocketed a piece and the game.>

40...♔f8? what a way to blow the game and go down in flames

excellent game by the two nonetheless :D

Aug-12-17  LA MAN: After awhile it is clear the a b and c rows are blocked and I think to lift the white rook to e3. then to g3. and advance the h pawn ASAP would prove a good strategy for white and best. As it was white ignored taking the pawn at f7. And failed to break up blacks vulnerable king side pawn wall asap. By these white would get a better game.
