3rd Sinquefield Cup - Round 7 recap

Opening: C88: Ruy Lopez: closed, anti-Marshall 8.a4

Player(s): Nakamura, Aronian

GM Jon Speelman recaps Round 7. When number one and number two of the world lose playing white, you can say it is a memorable round. Levon Aronian, arguably the player in best form at this point of the tournament, crushed Hikaru Nakamura, and that's not something everyone can do. Alexander Grischuk, the only Russian in the Sinquefield Cup - which already is a quite amazing fact - beat Magnus Carlsen, in a 6.5 hour struggle. Carlsen wasn't happy, obviously; his first comment was: " The way I lost it is really shameful... To lose so many games with the white pieces is ridiculous". Grischuk, with his usual witty way to comment his games, said: "What's important for me is that I managed to play three chess games in a row". Now Aronian leads solo by a full point, and Grischuk rises to second place, jointly with Carlsen, Giri and MVL. The other three games were drawn. With two rounds to go, Aronian is the favorite to win the second leg of the Grand Chess Tour. Tomorrow Carlsen will play Nakamura, and this is something that intrigues every the chess fan: will Nakamura finally win a classic game against the World Champion? We'll see. Round 8 starts at 2Pm EDT - 20:00 Central Europe.
