Champions Chess Tour – Airthings Masters Preliminaries 29th December 2020

 

MVL and Aronian take leads in the first sets of their Airthings Masters Quarter-finals

The second sets of these quarter-final mini-matches take place on Wednesday 30th December at 2pm GMT.

Dubov-Carlsen Game 4 is a draw, so they tie today’s match 2:2. They come back tomorrow when a similar draw would immediately be followed by a blitz playoff for a place in the semi-finals!

Wesley So and Hikaru Nakamura both must win their mini-matches tomorrow or they’re out of the #AirthingsMasters after MVL and Levon Aronian won today!

Dubov: “You can play like an idiot but then you still get this gift of playing Magnus!” Ends up defending a miserable ending a pawn down…

“It was again some magic… truly stunning!” (Leko) Magnus Carlsen finds a way to win the first game against Daniil Dubov!

Dubov finds 31…f5! and looks set to level the scores against Carlsen! https://chess24.com/en/watch/live-tournaments/champions-chess-tour-airthings-masters-2020-knockout/1/1/3 #c24live #AirthingsMasters

Dubov takes down Carlsen with Black to level the scores and will have the white pieces in today’s final game!

Levon Aronian strikes first with a win against Hikaru Nakamura! “A positional masterpiece” (Sethuraman)

Oops! MVL spots 44…Rxg2+! 45.Kxg2 Rxg3+! and Qg6+ to follow and is the first player to beat Wesley So in the #AirthingsMasters!

Peter Leko is doing this right (apart from not joining!)
