Wow – Carlsen beats Bu and Dubov loses to Xiong, so the gap is now 2 points with just 2 rounds to go! Only Mamedyarov could theoretically still beat Magnus without the need for Armageddon

 

Carlsen beats Grischuk and now leads by a full point with just 3 rounds to go

Carlsen completely crushes Grischuk, while Dubov loses with white against Bu! Guess who is back to leading

Leko can’t control himself seeing this position: “This is unbelievable! Black is absolutely toast! This is the worst ever Kings Indian!” #SteinitzMemorial

Grischuk missed the crushing 32.Qxh4+! here, with Rh5+ to follow… but it looks like he’s going to beat leader Dubov anyway!

Magnus Carlsen gets his revenge with a totally crushing win over Anton Korobov, but Dubov also wins to keep the lead!

Peter Svidler and Le Quang Liem both open with wins that see them catch Magnus Carlsen! https://chess24.com/en/watch/live-tournaments/fide-online-steinitz-memorial-2020/13/1/2 Magnus still has to play his Round 13 game, against Anton Korobov, who beat him in Round 1…

Lei Tingjie and Zhansaya Abdumalik pushed Kateryna all the way but fell just short!

Not much time for celebration in the Grischuk-Lagno household!

The Lei Tingjie vs. Lagno Armageddon has begun!

“There were many ups and downs and nobody stood out of the field so this Armageddon is completely justified,” – Peter Leko.

Abdumalik – Lagno in the last round of the FIDE Women’s Online Steinitz Memorial! The Kazakhstani is trailing by half a point, but she will have white against Lagno in the final round!

Tan Zhongyi beats Abdumalik in the penultimate round but Abdumalik, trailing by half a point, plays leader Lagno with White in the final round!

A huge turnaround as Alexander Kosteniuk blunders in a won position with 58…b3? and after 59.Rh1! it’s Lei Tingjie who moves within a point of the lead!

7 wins in a row now for Zhansaya Abdumalik, who retains the sole lead with 3 rounds to go!

A 6th win in 7 games takes 20-year-old Zhansaya Abdumalik into the lead with Alexandra Kosteniuk with 5 rotunda of the SteinitzMemorial!

Leko: “Magnus Carlsen is to blame…”
Peter explained that Kateryna Lagno had copied the 4…d6 Anti-Berlin that Magnus has made popular, though Magnus also lost with it yesterday to Svidler

Lei Tingjie beats overnight leader Kateryna Lagno and we already have 3 co-leaders after the first 2 games of the day!
