Game of the Week 357

The live show is free to watch, and available on-demand for ChessBase Premium accounts.

Fabiano Caruana didn't manage to win the USA Championship, since he was less effective in must-win situations than Hikaru Nakamura. The world number two did win a very instructive positional game against Lenderman, which we'll study tonight.

Warm-up question: What would you play here with White?

@Aighearach Thanks. Fixed.

The demo board isn't working, it says "wrong move sorry" for every move, including the move from the game score, and pressing the button for the solution instead highlights black's move.
