  beenthere240: I'm not sure but I have a feeling that both players saw the perpetual a mile a way.
May-15-13  jussu: Peter Doggers of ChessVibes described this game nicely: <The game indeed looked a bit like a romantic, 19th century struggle, with the main difference that both Nakamura and Svidler played very well, saw all the tactics and finished the game as a correct draw>

  Eyal: Both players analyzed the game in quite a great detail - see, starting from about 29:30. At the end, when asked about his reaction to Nakamura's opening choice, Svidler said that he has a ranking of rest-days for preparation according to his opponents. For example, Ivanchuk is at the top of the ranking - preparing for him is simply a rest day, since there's no point to bother as you can't guess what he's going to play anyway. Nakamura was close to the top, but after this game perhaps his status should also be upgraded to someone there's just no point to prepare against.
