Blitz Battle: Nakamura vs. Carlsen!

Russian Champion Peter Svidler won the Aker Chess Challenge beating Magnus Carlsen in the blitz finale. Carlsen had defeated Hikaru Nakamura the previous round in a highly-charged blitz battle. The two had played two rapid games in the previous round with Nakamura taking 1.5/2. However this rematch was soon to set the board ablaze. U.S. “Chess Journalist of the Year” Macauley Peterson caught the action and includes narration by both players. Nicely done!
