Lindores Abbey Rapid Challenge 2020.05.26

Magnus Carlsen set up a semi-final against Hikaru Nakamura while in a late twist Sergey Karjakin managed to win in Armageddon and force a decider tomorrow in his match against Daniil Dubov!

A Lindores Abbey Rapid Challenge negyeddöntőjében a világbajnok Magnus Carlsen másodszor is 2,5 – 0,5-re nyert az amerikai Wesley So ellen, az elődöntőben az amerikai Hikaru Nakamurával küzd meg. A másik ágon az orosz házirangadón Szergej Karjakin és Daniil vs Dubovon – a szerdai harmadik mérkőzésük dönti el a továbbjutást.

 

Tomorrow Wednesday 27th May at 3pm BST Karjakin and Dubov play a final match alongside Ding Liren and Yu Yangyi while Hikaru Nakamura and Magnus Carlsen who face each other in the semi-final have a day off.

With today’s games over only Hikaru Nakamura has made it to the semi-finals. Ding Liren & Yu Yangyi are tied 1:1 and will play a deciding match on Wednesday. Tomorrow So and Karjakin must beat Carlsen and Dubov to prolong their stay in the tournament!

Karjakin: “The only thing I want to say is that in the 1st game I was trying hard because I knew that I can win some decisive games because of my experience against Peter” Svidler: “Thank you very much for that – I needed that…” #HeritageChess

Carlsen vs. So is over, but Karjakin still has a chance if he can win the next game coming up now!

Carlsen on the semi-final vs. Nakamura: “I’m happy to get a free day tomorrow to rest up… but I’m pretty optimistic!”
