Tata Steel 2013 Group B Rd11-GM Rapport(HUN)

Here is Rapport’s rd11 with Naiditsch who won a fantastic minor piece ending BN-BN with opposite color bishops. 

The game started off with a harmless looking Winawer with 4.ed ed. Then the maneuvering action started with Rapport having his share of the chances.
