Gashimov Memorial 2016 - GOTD Round 4

Opening: C54: Giuoco Piano

Player(s): Mamedov, Caruana

Only two decisive games in Shamkir today, but a lot of action for another interesting round. Giri won with Harikrishna, who lost the second game in a row, after a good start. In a highly theoretical position played a lot of times - even by the Indian GM - Harikrishna blundered horribly and Giri was able to end the game in one move. Odd to see such a strong GM blunder two games in a row. Caruana and Mamedov played a good game in the trending Italian opening, getting into a tense, not easy to play position. Fabiano, with his proverbial technique prowess, was able to force Rauf into a lost endgame, bishop and 3 pawns vs. 5 pawns, with Mamedov's king in zugzwang. Mamedov resigned, facing the loss of all his pawns. A great game by Caruana, who leads solo at 3.5/4, followed by Giri at 3.0. The rest of the crowd looks at the duo from some distance: at 50% (2.0/4) Karjakin, Radjabov, Mamedyarov and Safarli. Tomorrow Round 5, at 7AM EDT -- 13:00 CET.
