One of the leaders of the Wijk aan Zee tournament Levon Aronian satisfied with a draw against Loek Van Wely in a well-studied branch of the Queen's Gambit. The game turned out to be unexciting. 

In the first decisive game of the fifth round American GM Nakamura defeated Czech GM David Navara. Nakamura gained advantage due to his original decisions in the rare branch of English opening. 


18.Rf5!? looks interesting, but American preferred more secure 18.a3.

After the game Navara noted: "It seemed that I've developed all the pieces, but after a3, I saw that taking Knight back on c6 wasn't the best decisions. I took it on a6 - which wasn't any better. So I got worse. I think Nakamura will get the prize for the best game in this round; and I'm playing bad, I know I do, but I don't know what to do with that".

Apparently, Czech GM had to risk playing 18...f5!.

Meanwhile in the game took place 18...Na6?! 19.Bxd5 Qxd5 20.Bf6 Qd6 21.Bxe7 Qxe7 22. Nf6+ Kg7 23.Qc4! and Black's position appears to be quite unsatisfactory.
