For my full coverage of the Russian Team Championships, (including 7 videos). Please check out my following post here:

Caruana opens with a Ruy Lopez, and Eljanov takes the game into a Berlin Defense. Eljanov attempted to lift his queenside rook to the 6th rank, however this plan seemed misplaced and Caruana attentively reacted to keep black's rook out of play. A few consecutive dubious moves by Eljanov and Caruana rapidly seized the initiative - and the win. A fine game by the young super-GM, Fabiano Caruana.
