Game 1 of Navara - Nakamura match lasted for about three hours. 

The opponents competed in one of the widely used lines of King's Indian, the outcome was much affected by what happened on moves 14-16:

NAVARA - NAKAMURA

14.Nb5 It looks like a novelty. The experts may evaluate the move, but first hand analysis say better was to go with: 14.0-0.
14...Qd8 Tactical 14...Nxd5! 15.exd5 f4 seems also good for Black. 
15.Bxb6?! Too much haste. White could again go with castling (not the only possibility though). 
15...cxb6 16.Nxd6 Nc5. The line turned out to work in Nakamura's favor as he got a comfortable play. Later Czech GM failed to defend.
