The winner of the Sinquefield Cup will be determined in the last round. Nakamura - Carlsen encounter of yesterday, as well as Aronian - Kamsky duel, was drawn.

"I didn't even prepare for the game," Chessvibes quotes Nakamura. "I didn't want to play anything crazy." As it turned out this was the shortest game of the tournament.

"I'm usually not too unhappy with the draw as Black against such strong players," Carlsen concluded. "I was hoping that he would overpress and he would play for a loss, but obviously he is much too good of a player for that."

Levon Aronian again played a novelty 5.Bf4 in Dutch defence.

Kamsky suggested that White can't really get anything out of it. In any case eventually Aronian had to play fro a draw in this sharp game.
