  An Englishman: Good Afternoon: Both players came out fighting, only to be "rewarded" with a draw. Nisipeanu played nice defense against Kramnik's attack after a wild opening--did Black have any improvements?
Jul-19-17  paavoh: Not a boring GM draw. Far from it.

  Sokrates: Agreed! Highly entertaining game. The fireworks began with 13.cxd5 and lasted till the end in almost one breath. Well fought by both players.
Jul-21-17  Clement Fraud: Just to echo the other remarks... a fine game indeed!

Some years ago I read an article by Nigel Short in what I think was a daily column he had in The Times newspaper (it might not have been The Times). In his article, Nigel annotated a game he'd won against Anatoly Karpov: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chess game?gid=1069431 The game was a Nimzo-Indian using the above variation (4.Qc2 O-O 5.e4). In the game Karpov declined the mainline for 5... d6?! (before later getting slaughtered). Nigel commented that 5... d5 had been the correct move, which was alleged to give black some advantage according to theory (theory with which Mr Short disagreed).

It is marvellous that Liviu Dieter Nisipeanu has adopted 5.e4 against the Nimzo in a serious tournament - perhaps a new mainline?

Jul-21-17  Clement Fraud: 11.g3 was a good finesse; but 21.Rb4 was - I feel - a mistake (and 21.Rg1+ would've been better).
