We asked a well known GM Evgeny Sveshnikov to commentate on Carlsen - Nakamura encounter played in Round 12 in Group A. The game has made Magnus the winner of Tata Steel. The variation which took place in the encounter is usually referred as "improved Sveshnikov".
GM's commentary is available in the audio player [in Russian].  

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 e5 5.Nb5 d6 6.g3 This move shows White is not going to capture d5 square. This kind of slow development of pieces can't bring anything good to White. The best for Black is to play either Nf6 or Bg4. The position is not compeltely equal. I have faced those moves in my practice. The position stays complicated. In my opinion Black even stands better here. 

Most of the players follow computer analysis and play 6...h5, which is not necessary at all. Black should focus on the center. This move is too pretentious and forces Black to refuse the castling. I believe this is not the best play for Black.  

7.N1c3 a6 8.Na3 b5 I didn't get this. Why didn't he just play 8...h4? I played h5, h4 only once against Katya Lahno and after she answered with Bg2 and later I got worse. Black is trying to play actively on the kingside, while it should be thinking about the center and organize the capture of d5 square.

9.Nd5 Nge7 10.Bg2 Bg4 11.f3 Be6 12.c3 h4 13.Nc2 Bxd5 14.exd5 Na5 15.f4 Nf5 16.g4 h3 17.Be4 Nh4 18.0-0 g6 19.Kh1 Bg7 20.f5 gxf5 21.gxf5 Ng2 22.f6 Bf8 23.Qf3 Qc7 24.Nb4 Nb7 25.Nc6 Nc5 26.Bf5 Nd7 27.Bg5 Rg8 28.Qh5 Nb6 29.Be6 Rxg5 30.Qxg5 fxe6 31.dxe6 1-0

Sveshnikov also shared his thoughts about the players.

"Nakamura plays openings superficially and makes mistakes quite frequantly. He is interesting as a practical player, but... Carlsen's weakness is above all the openingAt this stage of the game he is not a strong player. He should be outplayed in the opening, while his opponents do the opposite. The way new generation plays the opening... I would say those aren't neither Polugaevsky nor Kasparov. They lack succession in openings. They just play chess, that's why their chances to fight for the title are small. Honeslty, I prefer Karjakin's play. I like him as a player and he really has a perspective. At the moment Carlsen shows a good practical play, but if Kasparov won't coach him with his preparation methods I would say Magnus's future doesn't look so promising. He is surely a very talented player, but only those who will be making the strongest moves can become the champions. Only scientific component of chess has a chance to win nowadays. Not a single practical player has a chance of becoming the champion without scientific approach to the subject."
