Gashimov Memorial 2016 - GOTD Round 1

Opening: A13, B48: English opening: Agincourt variation, Sicilian: Taimanov variation

Player(s): Caruana, Harirkishna, Safarli, Eljanov

GM Max Dlugy recaps Round 1. The third Gashimov Memorial, a super tournament hosted in the city of Shamkir, Azerbaijan, in honor of the late GM Vugar Gashimov, this year is missing the World Champion, who has won the first two editions. Nonetheless, the line-up is very interesting, with world #2 Fabiano Caruana, world #4 Anish Giri, the Candidate Sergey Karjakin, the women World Champion Hou Yifan, and strong GMs such as Pavel Eljanov, Pentala Harikrishna, Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, Teimour Radjabov, Eltaj Safarli and Rauf Mamedov. The first round ended with 5 draws, but at least two games were quite interesting. GM Max Dlugy shows us Caruana vs. Harikrishna and Safarli vs. Eljanov, in his Game Of the Day recap video.
