Legends of Chess Prelim
Round “9.1

Nepo can’t stop laughing as he blunders a draw by 3-fold repetition in a won position!

It’s been a tough event for Ding Liren, but he starts the final day with a win over Leko: https://chess24.com/en/watch/live-tournaments/chess24-legends-of-chess-2020/9/2/1 If Magnus wins the event Ding will still qualify for the $300,000 Grand Final, and it may help that he has a longer rest before it!

Legends of Chess Prelim
Round “9.2

Grischuk: “I need to take a kindergarden break so hopefully Vladimir’s idea was not a kindergarden one…” (mic drop)

Here Nepo played Qa7+, but Grischuk points out the best try here was Qb6+, hoping White replies the same way and forgets about his queen on f6!

52-year-old Boris Gelfand exacts full punishment for world no. 4 Ian Nepomniachtchi’s opening sins (2.a3!? 4.h4!?) to level their match! (though to be fair, Nepo got a good position out of the opening)
