Remember those fabulous eighties?

Hikaru Nakamura is certainly trying to make something happen in the final rounds of the Bazna Kings, but it's not so easy to beat one's 2750+ peers. Today, Nakamura resurrected the Petrosian System against the Queen's Indian, a favorite weapon of Kasparov in the early 1980's.

Karjakin makes the position look like of these newfangled Grünfeld lines, and Nakamura can't do anything with his slight edge. A reasonable draw.
