Gashimov Memorial 2015 - Round 6

Opening: A48: King's Indian

Player(s): Kramnik, Caruana

GM Joel Benjamin recaps Round 6. It started as a very slow day at the office. I mean, in Shamkir. Carlsen and Giri threw the whole set of pieces to each other, to draw in one hour of - boring - play. So vs. Mamedyarov was slighlty more interesting, but really nothing special. In slow-motion, all the games eneded in a draw, but one: Kramnik vs. Caruana. After 3 hours of play their game exploded in a fireworks show, with the young American (who respresents Italy) launched into a vicious attack. The great Vlad tried with all his experience and chess genius to contrast Fabiano's forces, but to no avail; Caruana played showing his amazing prowess at calculating variations, and Kramnik resigned two moves from checkmate. As for the standings, today's only decisive game didn't change much, if not for a flip-flop between Kramnik and Caruana. After 6 rounds, and with 3 rounds to go, Magnus Carlsen is in the lead with 4.5 points, followed by Wesley So with 4. Third Vishy Anand with 3.5 and then Fabiano Caruana and Mamedyarov with 3 points. 2.5 for Kramnik, Giri, MVL and Mamedov. Adams - who is not having the tournament of his life - closes the list with 2 points.
