Tata Steel Chess january 26, 2021 Round9

  Giri, Caruana and Firouzja share the lead on 6 points after 9 rounds Round 10 Pairings Wednesday 27th Jan 2021 1pm: MVL-Donchenko, Duda-Van Foreest, Harikrishna-Tari, Esipenko-Anton, Grandelius-Firouzja, Caruana-Carlsen, Giri-Wojtaszek.

 

 

Story by VG today on how Carlsen has actually lost more games than he’s won since he turned 30, all formats included. Pretty remarkable indeed.

30…c4! could have saved Nils, but after 30…Qd8? 31.Rxe5 Magnus is on course to win a second game of #TataSteelChess and return to a plus score!

MVL about to lose a 3rd game in a row with his beloved Najdorf?

Defending Champion Fabiano Caruana beats Wojtaszek and is likely to go into tomorrow’s game against Magnus Carlsen as sole or joint leader!
