Hikaru Nakamura is the sole leader of the Tal Memorial once again

Hikaru Nakamura continues sticking to the "Russian" theme. In his game of round six of the Tal Memorial, he played the Ruy Lopez variation 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 g6 and explained that he did so under the creativity influence of Vasily Smyslov and Boris Spassky. After defeating the World Champion, Nakamura single-handedly leads the race again.

It was probably the serious inaccuracy Anand made ​​on the 19th move that became the turning point in the game:


19.Rac1?! Better was 19.Re1, after which the American was considering 19...c4 20.Qe3 f5, but was unable to calculate till the very end. Hikaru called the complications that arouse later similar to "Tal's spirit". 
19...c6 20.dxc6 Qxc6 21.Bc3 Bxf3 22.gxf3 Rad8 23.Rxd8 Rxd8 24.Rd1 Rd7 25.Rxd7 Qxd7 26.Qd5 The Indian player is not correct everywhere, but it is impossible to find a clear equalization during a quick analysis. After the queen's exchange, Nakamura went over to a winning, but requiering technical accuracy, endgame and led it to the win.

At the press conference the American was asked if grandmasters did not get too tired when playing super tournaments and whether more days off should be considered in this regard. Nakamura made it clear upfront: if it were up to him, there would be no rest days at all. "I'd rather play for nine days and then just go home. But you know, I've been talking to my team mate Kamsky and he was saying how ten - fifteen years ago he could just play every day and now he can't. So I might very well have a different opinion later.

Precisely tomorrow the participants of the Tal Memorial are granted another rest day before the final segment. The competition will continue on June 21.
