GM Ronen Har-Zvi recaps Round 2. MVL, the young Frenchman, won the second game in a row, and now leads solo with 2 out of 2. Nakamura and Andreikin drew their respective games, and now share second place half a point behind the leader. Caruana did not manage to win a game that gave him some chances; all the other games were also drawn. Ronen asks himself whether Caruana is playing a bit too much, and his form is now inevitably in a descending phase. We'll see. The tournament is a long one and the number two in the world has got plenty of time to recover from a bad start.
