FIDE Candidates 2016 - Video Recap Round 1

Opening: A30, C65: English: symmetrical variation, Ruy Lopez: Berlin defense

Player(s): Caruana, Nakamura, Anand, Topalov

Vishy, Vishy, Vishy! Yes, the first round of the Candidates' 2016 is all about the great Indian player, who swiftly beat Topalov in a fantastic game, to take the early sole lead. Again, everyone had Anand as the least probable winner of this event, and the "Tiger" shows once again that nobody should ever underestimate his immense class. The tournament is long - 14 rounds - and obviously it's not the case to start celebrating Anand, but it's just too good to see Vishy fight like a young stud, and reminding all his foes that he's there, and it won't be easy  for them. The US duel finished in a draw, with Nakamura apparently missing a good chance to get an advantage. Aronian and Giri played an interesting game, also drawn. the all-Russian match between Peter Svidler and Sergey Karjakin was draw. After the first round, Anand leads, followed by everyone else half a point behind, and Topalov at one full point. Tomorrow Round 2: Svidler-Topalov, Aronian-Anand, Caruana-Giri and Karjakin-Nakamura.
