  SirRuthless: I think 15.f3 would be a objectively bad move. Bc5+ Nh5 and d4 are all swirling in the position and if black gets for instance 15.f3 Bc5+ 16. Bf2 Bxf2 17.Rxf2 d4! then he is very string because Nh5-f4 and Qh4 are still in the position. while now 18. cxd4 is met with 19. Qd4+ forking on b2 and c4 is bad because white gets in Nf4 and now h3 becomes weak if g3 so black gets the octopus knight on f4.I see nothing good for black in those lines. Alternatively, 15. Qe2, Re1 and Ng4 are more interesting but I see nothing too bad about what white chose.
Aug-03-17  Mirovsk: Anand X Nakamura....30 moves and draw...only a pawn and a horse down each player....shame, shame, shame on Danzhou it was forbidden for the players to offer draws....
