Nakamura defeats Navara in Prague

BannerNavaraFINALThe traditional ČEZ Chess Trophy 2014 Festival took place from 6th to 10th June, 2014 at the marvelous Michna Palace in Prague, the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic.

The 4 game match between GM Hikaru Nakamura (2775) and the best Czech player GM David Navara (2724) finished 3,5-0,5 in favor of the American guest.

Nakamura started with a bang, outplaying his opponent in the first round after a brilliant pawn sacrifice with Black pieces in the King’s Indian Defence.

In the second game Navara was the one who gave a pawn for an initiative, but didn’t manage to convert and lost again.

The only draw in the match was saved by Nakamura. The 2014 Czech champion had an advantage and transformed it into a pawn up rook endgame, still not enough for a win.

The great ČEZ Chess Trophy 2014 Festival finished with a beautiful checkmate delivered by the American top player, thus setting up the final result 3,5-0.5.
