David Navara played fantastically at the World Cup this year, demonstrating to the fullest extent why he belongs with the world’s best chess players. His round 5 encounter with Alexander Grischuk was hard-fought as the first two regulation games were tensely drawn. Grischuk struck in game 1 of the rapid tiebreakers, busting out thorough preparation with the Caro-Kann against an interesting line chosen by Navara involving an early 4. Nd2!? and 5. Nb3. Grischuk emerged from the opening with a sizable initiative after 15. …d4! – temporarily sacrificing a pawn to rapidly develop a dangerous attack against white’s exposed king. Navara blundered an exchange with 23. h4? – a material advantage with Grischuk patiently nurtured to victory in 43 moves.
