    Some of the games at this event have been quite extraordinary.

    Nakamura does a sac/sac followed by a King Hunt and Checkmate.

    That is a pretty cool game.

    e5 in the KID had been out of vogue which bugged me because I always liked that king side pawn storm.

    The question is, how did Nakamura see such a progression during the game? Is he that good?

    Sinquefield ended today, Aronian 1st with 6, Carlsen tied for 2nd-4th at 5. Another sub-par result for Magnus-loses to Topalov and Grischuk. Disastrous event for Caruana and So, finished in 9th and 10th places.

    So finished with two brilliancies. Unfortunately, he was on the losing side of both games.

    This can't bode well for So or Caruana's title hopes. If I'm not mistaken, this is the 3rd straight super-tournament Fabiano has lost to Carlsen in their individual game.
