Sep-24-13  SirRuthless: Unsound sac or blunder. Bacrot declined to state so we can assume it was just a big blunder...
Sep-24-13  pajaste: Chessdom evaluations claim 12...c5 was doubtful and 22...Qb5 somewhat dubious. 32...a6 was the final straw in an already almost lost position.

  Domdaniel: Nice game by Nakamura -- and perhaps the first seriously unbalanced game in this entire event.

  Domdaniel: Systems with Bf4 seem to have become more popular in the Queen's Gambit, though this way of treating the QGD is still highly original. Both players deserve praise here, even if Bacrot's play was ultimately refuted.

  Jambow: Nakamura with both time and space to his advantage, As a KID player he often counter punches and usually exceptionally well. However that too has led to some lopsided losses against Svidler, Ivanchuk and Carlsen. Nakamura has grown to be one of the most diverse players at the upper echelon of chess.

Bottom line this was well played, we can see mistakes by Bacrot, but the force of whites play will make even top players play sub optimally.
