London Chess Classic 2012 R1: Aronian-Nakamura 0-1

The London Chess Classic 2012 began with an explosive start with all four games being decisive in the first round. One of these decisive games was between World No. 1 Levon Aronian and US Chess Champion Hikaru Nakamura. Aronian lost the thread of his attack down the Queenside and Nakamura infiltrated with a dangerous Queen+Knight assault on a defenseless White King. Aronian blundered away a piece with 26.Rd2.
