Jan-Krzysztof Duda had a better structure and more active pieces in his first-round game against Richard Rapport. But how to make progress here? Where should the light-squared bishop go to maximize the pressure?
The Polish grandmaster went for 22.Be2 instead of 22.Bb3, which would have given him better winning chances going forward.
In the only decisive game from round 2, Hikaru Nakamura beat Teimour Radjabov after making the most of his extra pawn in a double-edged endgame.
It turns out that Black’s counterplay here is just enough for a draw! But here Radjabov needed to play 61…Rb1 instead of 61…Rc1.
