4th FIDE GP 2015 - Round 1

Opening: D15: QGD semi-Slav: accelerated Meran (Alekhine variation)

Player(s): Jobava, Tomashevsky

IM John Watson recaps Round 1. Evgeny Tomashevsky, the strong Russian GM who won the Tbilisi GP and leads the general standings of the series, started this last GP with a win, confirming his being the favorite for a spot in the candidates. He didn't even need to reach Time Control to beat Baadur Jobava, winning the QGD Semi-Slav game in 39 moves. Jakovenko won his game against the much higher rated Anish Giri, setting himself as an early leader with Tomashevsky. All the other games were drawn. This is a long tournament - 11 rounds - therefore it's impossible to make any prevision or wild guess after the first round, but today we saw some quite fighting chess, and that's what the fans want to see. ICC will cover the whole tournament with a video recap for each round.

This is a 5 minute preview.
