Gashimov Memorial 2015 - Round 2

Opening: D11: QGD: Slav

Player(s): Carlsen, Mamedyarov

GM Ronen Har-Zvi recaps Round 2. Mamedyarov could not find a valid idea to make his game dangerous, and you can't "just play" against Numero Uno Magnus Carlsen, unless you want to be thrown out the chess board. Which is what happened to the strong Azeri GM today. Magnus won in a very convincing style, though helped by Mamedyarov's all but creative game. The other 4 games were draws. With today's win, Magnus joins Vladimir Kramnik and Wesley So on top, with 1.5 points, followed by Caruana, Anand, Vachier-Lagrave and Mamedov with 1 point. Giri, Mamedyarov and Adams close the list with 0.5 points. Tomorrow is round 3, and Carlsen lost his 3rd round game in the last few tournaments he participated in. Maybe we need something superstitious to make Carlsen's supremacy more interesting? We'll see.
