Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-10-16  Robyn Hode: Not even Nakamura can divert Giri from his quest to draw every game he will ever play.
Dec-10-16  1971: Defensive gem.
Dec-11-16  Amulet: Wow! fantastic drawn game. Who gets the merits anyway?
Dec-11-16  1971: Incredible craftsmanship from Nakamura.
Dec-11-16  dm1991: Maybe it's only me but i have a feeling Anish played this game rather passive. I have the same feelings towards their game in Bilbao earlier this year A Giri vs Nakamura, 2016. Maybe it's just his style hypnotizing me.

If i remember Hikaru spent a lot of time after 7. Qxd4 and decided to prevent any Qh5 & Bh6 plan by playing 7... Qa5 & 8... Qh5 himself. Anish however lost also quite some time in playing 12. Bg5 which i'm not sure of. If i would have trouble with immediate 12. b4 which might not work because of Bg7 then at least play immediate 12. Rd1. After 12. Bg5 Hikaru played 12... Ba6 and white's main strength - queenside majority was stuck for the rest of the game.
