Gashimov Memorial 2015 - Round 3

Opening: A90: Dutch defense

Player(s): Caruana, Carlsen

IM Christof Sielecki recaps Round 3. Mamaedov-Kramnik and Mamedyarov-MVL were two quite dull draws; in the first game Mamedov and Kramnik exchanged almost everything to reach a draw ending, and Mamedyarov-MVL got into a long theoretical line of the King's Indian, which led to an easy draw. Much more interesting was the draw betwwen Anand and Giri, where the players played very precisely and creatively. The main dish of today's round was for sure the two decisive games: Magnus Carlsen strangled positionally - in a wonderfully played endgame - Fabiano Caruana, and Wesley So won a very good game against Adams, showing how strong his positional sense of the game is. After three rounds, Carlsen and So leads with 2.5 points, followed by Vladimir Kramnik with 2 points, then Anand, MVl and Mamedov with 1.5.
