3rd Sinquefield Cup - Round 3 recap

Opening: A05, A30: English, English: symmetrical, four knights system

Player(s): So, Grischuk, Carlsen, Vachier-Lagrave

GM Max Dlugy recaps Round 3. Two in a row. The World Champion is back, winning as he usually does. Magnus beat the strong French GM Vachier-Lagrave, in an English Opening game. A typical win for Carlsen: he got a slight advantage in the middle game and then slowly but steadily improved his position, strangling his opponent and forcing him to make mistakes. Now Carlsen shares 2nd with Giri and Aronian, half a point behind Topalov, who drew against his old-time foe Vishy Anand. Aronian and Giri drew, while So managed to win against Grischuk - who, guess what? Yes, you're right: he blundered in time-trouble. Now Wesley shares - at 50% - 3rd with Nakamura and MVL. Caruana finally got his first half a point, drawing Nakamura in a long struggle. Fabiano shares last place with Anand. Gm Max Dlugy and GM Var Akobian commentated live on the round for ICC's members.
