The main competition of the traditional Biel festival has started today in Switzerland. A double round-robin GM super-torunament surely is the highlight of the festival.

Carlsen - Nakamura, against all expectations, turned out to be the least interesting game of Round 1. White kept putting pressure, but in general the position stayed approximately equal. 

Bacrot faced Wang Hao and decided to play the variant of the King's Indian defence which was applied by Anish Giri against Kramnik last year. The rare continuation 12.Bf3  played by the Russian GM, gained popularity exactly after this game. Bacrot prepared the idea with moving f-pawn: 17...f418...f3, but it didn't help black and eventually black was outrplayed. =>watch the games  

In Morozevich - Giri the creative play started from the very beginning of the encounter, after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 d5 4.Nf3 Bg7 5.Qb3 dxc4 6.Qxc4 0-0 7.e4 the Dutch player made a rare move 7...Be6, while Russian answered in the way that hasn't been chosen before: 8.Qb5. The position was approximately equal, but then Anish made a sudden mistake.

MOROZEVICH - GIRI

32...Qd6? If Morozevich has played 33.Qh6! with the further taking on f7, the game would probably finish in his favor. Alexander missed the blow and the game just went on another complicated stage. White king was forced to hide from checks: it wasn't actually decisive, but Morozevich had to play accurately. Eventually, he made a mistake. 

49.Re4? White had to defend g2-pawn: 49.Rg4. Now, after the check from f5 everything is over.
