Dortmund 2015 - GOTD Round 7

Opening: C67: Ruy Lopez: Berlin defense

Player(s): So, Kramnik

GM Larry Christiansen recaps Round 7. Fifth win and final victory for the American prodigal son, Fabiano Caruana. In a spectacular game against his direct rival for the success in Dortmund - the Romanian GM playing for Germany Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu, Fabiano finished the tournament with an amazing 5.5/7. Nisipeanu opened with the Evans Gambit(!), an ancient, romantic and not-much used opening and Caruana was able to come out of the opening with a decent position. The tactics at the end was truly remarkable, and gave Fabiano the win and thhis third Sparkassen Chess title. Congratulations to Fabiano! Kramnik pushed hard to win against Wesley So, playing bodly withuot compromises, but his attempt to grab a clear second spot in the standings backfired, and So was able to win, playing a precise and brilliant endgame. Hou Yifan drew Nepomniachtchi, and Naiditsch drew Meier. It's been an exciting tournament, with a great - and indefatigable - Caruana showing that he belongs up there, in the olympus of 2800 players.
