London: Polgar's Generosity, Nakamura's Artfulness and Other Decisive Encounters of Round 1

Время публикации: 02.12.2012 14:51 | Последнее обновление: 02.12.2012 14:52

Yesterday Judit Polgar made a present for Vladimir Kramnik on already the 11th move, thus turning the game for Russian GM into a warm-up session. Hungarian sacrificed a piece without enough compensation and Kramnik left her no chances while converting his advantage.

Levon Aronian also had an unsuccessful start: Nakamura who was Black got a comfortable position already in the opening, Armenian failed  to cope with all the complications and was forced to resign on the 32nd move.

The encounters McShane - Carlsen, Jones - Adams can be described shortly: players with Black were just stronger.

Noteworthy is that Garry Kasparov wished the players luck on his Twitter page before the competition has started and noted that the participants' list of London Chess Classic is ideal for getting lots of decisive games. Not a single draw was agreed in Round 1 so far.
