Biel: Nakamura Wins 'According to Petrosian', While an Original Play by Bologan Did Not Bring Him Relief

Having won against Viorel Bologan, the Chinese Wang Hao cemented his lead in the main competition of the Biel festival. Today's game didn't work out for the Moldavian from the beginning. Wang Hao used not a very frequent move 10.Rb1 in the Benko Gambit, to which Bologan responded with a fairly original bishop manoeuvre:

WANG HAO - BOLOGAN

10....Ba6-c8, 11...Bf5 (causing е2-е4), 12...Bc8 13...Ba6. For the sake of weakening the squares d3 and f3, Black didn't mind sparing four tempos. The manoeuvre that followed, Nfd7 - Nb6, further strengthened White's advantage, who comfortably pushed е4-е5. Bologan tried to confuse the opponent with tactics, but that didn't help.

The quickest result was Hikaru Nakamura's win over Etienne Bacrot. The American used the completely unfashionable these days 'Petrosian Variation' with white in the King's Indian Defence. The Frenchman started a standard attack on the kingside, but did not succeed and was left with nothing. It's interesting that in the third round Nakamura played another old variation, in the Sicilian Defence, which was named after another bright representative of the Soviet Chess School, Lev Polugaevsky.

Magnus Carlsen wasn't able to break through the Petroff Defence played by Anish Giri and now, according to the results of the first round of the double round-robin tournament, the Norwegian is only sharing 3-4 places and lagging 4 points behind the leader (according to 'the three point system' for a win).
