3rd Sinquefield Cup - Round 2 recap

Opening: A45: Queen's pawn: London system

Player(s): Grischuk, Anand

Another amazing round in St. Louis. Caruana's impersonation of Grischuk did not work very well, and the former Italian talent blundered badly on move 40, trying to make it to time control with a few seconds on the clock, allowing Magnus Carlsen to finally bounce back, interrupting the worse streak of bad results he's had in .. forever. Grischuk played a smooth and apparently easy game against Anand, using the London system. Topalov said, in a recent interview published on New in Chess, that he's taking life and chess in a Buddhist way. Easy, without all the stress that has been his companion during his long career. Well, it's paying off! Today he beat convincingly the super-strong American Hikaru Nakamura, and now is in the sole lead with 2 out of 2. Giri and So drew, as well as Aronian and Vachier Lagrave. With 8 decisive games out of 10 played so far, the Sinquefield Cup keeps up the "tradition", proving to be a hard fought tournament. ICC members enjoyed the excellent commentary with IM John Watson and GM Gata Kamsky.

This is a 5 minute preview.
