53rd Reggio Emilia 2010-11

Two incredibly interesting games were played today between Navara-Caruana and Short-Morozevich. If in the first game white managed to squeeze a small advantage, in the second game Black seemed to have a decisive advantage and an attack on White King but erred and lost. The other games were drawn.
