  transpose: If the exchange sac was opening prep then black did not do a good job preparing. It would seem black made a few inaccurate moves immediately after the sac that brought home the point from Nakamura.
Feb-03-16  JoeBerylwood: Black's e4 idea was mistimed. Allowing the white LSB to get to c3 where it wanted to be anyway to blunt the power of the opposing B on g7 was a bad idea. From there black seemed aimless. He was in prep until he played Bc2 but then seemed to run out of ideas and was duly punished.

  tamar: The accuracy of Gupta's moves fell off severely. It looks like he found a playable exchange sacrifice, but could not remember the details.

Contrast with the game here e4 comes with a threat, and so Black wins back the exchange and can probably hold.
