Hikaru Nakamura and Magnus Carlsen are first to finish the starting part of the super-tournament held in Biel. 

The exclusive express commentary by Eldar Safarli specially for Chess-News:

Carlsen, who was black, chose Grunfeld, which is played on a high level quite frequently. On move 7 he went on a less known continuation which is rarely played:

7... c6!?

The main line is 7...0–0 8.e3 c5 9.cxd5 Qxd5 10.Be2 Nc6 11.0–0 cxd4 12.cxd4 Bf5 13.Qa4 Qa5.

8.e3 0–0 9.cxd5  Possible was 9.Qb3 after which 9...Qa5!? 9...cxd5 would be interesting

10.c4 It seems that the plan chosen by white is not the best. Perhaps it should have played a simple 10.Be2 or even 10.Bd3, preventing activation of black bishop from f5. And still the position is approximately equal, maybe with just a slight advantage for white.

10… Nc6 11.c5?! And now black doesn't have any problems. Perhaps, 11.Rb1 was the best choice for white.

11…  Bg4 Now after 11...f6! and then e5 black had an opportunity to grab initiative. For example, 12.Bg3 e5 13.Be2 Qa5 14.Qd2 Qd2 15.Kd2 Bf5. However, the following took place in the game

12.Be2 Bxf3 and after several exchanges 13.Bxf3 e5 14.dxe5 Bxe5!? 15.Bxe5 Nxe5 16.0–0 Nxf3+ 17.Qxf3  the position completely equalized. The opponents agreed on a logical draw:

Rc8 18.Rac1 Qd7 19.Rfd1 Rfd8 20.Qe2 Rc6 21.Qb2 Rdc8 22.Qa3 b6 23.cxb6 Rxc1 24.Rxc1 Rxc1+ 25.Qxc1 axb6 26.Qb2 Qc6 27.h3 h5 28.a4 Qxa4 29.Qxb6 Qa1+ 30.Kh2 Qe5+ 31.Kg1 Qa1+ 32.Kh2 Qe5+ 33.Kg1 1/2
