Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu played an interesting Schliemann Defence as black against Sergey Karjakin. In spite of being two pawns down and the queens coming off Nisipeanu had a way to equality (31...Re4) but after missing it in time pressure he got a difficult (but probably holdable) ending but he didn't manage to save it. Teimour Radjabov was slightly worse as white against Vassily Ivanchuk but he defended carefully enough and the game was drawn. Hikaru Nakamura has taken a step back since his win in Wijk aan Zee and he described his play as garbage after his game against Magnus Carlsen. Carlsen said he didn't sleep well and was glad of such an easy draw.
