Gashimov Memorial 2015 - Round 5

Opening: A05: Reti: King's Indian Attack

Player(s): Carlsen, Vachier-Lagrave

GM John Fedorowicz recaps Round 5. At the end(ing), Magnus did it again. It is amazing to see how the Norwegian chess genius makes all of it look simple, almost natural. His fantastic engame skills gave him another brilliant victory today, in the game played against the strong French number one Maxime Vachier-Lagrave. Wesley So, who entered round 5 as the sole leader, lost with a great Anand. Anand played at his best, using a long-term piece sac to get into a winning position in the endgame. Mamedyarov, in a long struggle - 75 moves - beat Vladimir Kramnik to climb up a bit in the standings. After an interesting and entertaining round, Carlsen is again on top alone, with 4 points, followed by Wesley So at 3.5; Third Vishy Anand with 3 points, then Kramnik and Mamedyarov with 2.5; Caruana, Giri, MVL and Mamedov share 6th-9th with 2 points. Adams closes the list with 1.5. Tomorrow is the only day off in Shamkir. Play resumes Thursday the 23rd, at 6AM EDT.
