Biel, round 3, all games annotated

Recommended Posts

Only 2 games for this round. (as you know, morozevich withdrew and the game Bologan-Carlsen will be played on Sunday, the rest day)

The 2 games are quite interesting. Nakamura played a Polugayevsky variation of the Sicilian, and at one point things looked rather promising for him...

Giri played a great game on the white side of a King´s Indian.
