Levon Aronian and Hikaru Nakamura visited the press center of Tal Memorial after their game. Mostly the winner of the game, Armenian GM, was talking during the meeting. Aronian confessed he didn't expect his rival to play the main line of the English opening.

"The critical point in the position took place after 15...a6. And then I started to think long and make absolutly crazy moves. White had a lot of opportunities. Maybe the queen had to be moved somewhere. I thought that 16.Bh3 g6 is a good idea, but then I calculated the variant and it turned out that I wouldn't have a good move in that position... After 17...Qg7 White perhaps should play accurately, because it already stands a bit worse."

However, soon Nakamura made two decisive mistakes in a row: 21...g5 and 22...Re6, "and here the position just crashes."
