Nakamura Tries PCG but Loses

In round four of the Battle at the Border tournament, GM Hikaru Nakamura [pictured] tried the Philidor Counter Gambit as Black but lost against GM Pascal Charbonneau.

Instead of Nakamura's 5...Bxf5, worthy of consideration is 5...Nf6 as played by me against IM Justin Sarkar.
