  Penguincw: Hmm, last round game here. Nakamura can catch MVL, but he needs to win (and MVL needs only a draw). Also considering Anand beat Nakamura for the first time ever in classical last meeting, I was sure Nakamura was thirsty for a rematch. I was mislead. :)
Jun-15-15  Mr 1100: Yeah, I thought Nakamura disliked short draws?
Jun-15-15  apexin: Black is better because of possibility of Nd4, also theres a weak pawn on d3 ... should have played on. didnt expect Naka to agree to draw here.
Jun-15-15  SirRuthless: Why play on and stress over a blitz game when the goal is to get the extra white? They both made a prudent choice and secured the extra white without any drama or craziness and both gained blitz rating from the event. Job done.
