The King's Indian defense met with the Classical set up and Naiditsch threw the position open with a fantastic knight sacrifice in the middle game.
The move left everyone present shocked as black slowly developed an attack against a weak white king. According to the machines, the position was defendable but it was out of the wits of a human mind to sustain such pressure. This was certainly the game of the tournament thus far.
Luck continued to be on the side of Caruana as he survived another mishap. Meier had a winning position on board and was just one correct move away to score his first victory but the German erred decisively to reach a drawn queen and pawns endgame.
Results round 6: V Anand (Ind, 3.5) drew with Michael Adams (Eng, 2.5); Georg Meier (Ger, 2) drew with Fabiano Caruana (Ita, 4); Daniel Fridman (Ger, 2.5) lost to Arkadij Naiditsch (Ger, 3.5).
