Caruana - Nisipeanu encounter in Round 2 of the Kings Tournament held in Bucharest finished unexpectedly. Black didn't experience any problems in a calm Caro-Kann, then he made a witty sacrifice of an exchange for the positional compensation. It seems that this kind of a bolt out of blue was prepared by Romanian GM already from 27th move.


27...Re4? Is this beginning of the end? 28.Rxe4 dxe4 29.Qc4 Bf3? In any case Nisipeanu's play was quite logical. 30.gxf3 Qg5+ 31.Kf1 Qc1+ 32.Ke2 Qc2+ 33.Ke3 Qc1+

34.Kxe4?? After 34.Kd4 king could hide from checks and Black could resign (34...Qd1+ 35.Kc5 Qxa4 36.Kb6! also doesn't give anything, the game is still won for White). Now White king gets under perpetual check. 34...Qe1+ 35.Kf4 Qc1+ 36.Ke4 Qe1+ 1/2
