Grenke Classic 2015 Round 4

Opening: A30, A90: English: symmetrical variation, Dutch defense

Player(s): Naiditsch, Baramidze, Anand, Carlsen

GM Ronen Har-Zvi recaps Round 4. Arkadij Naiditsch, the local hero, leads the pack after today's victory against his fellow countryman Baramidze. The all-German match was rather crazy, with Baramidze playing like there were no tomorrow: launching a full-force attack that unfortunately - for him - didn't lead anywhere. Obviously the Game Of the Day was Anand vs. Carlsen. It is always a sort of rematch when World Champion and his latest challenger meet over the board. Alas, Anand played a rather anonymous game today: he got nothing out of the opening, then tried to attack Carlsen's position, but blundered in a quite unusual way, to leave Carlsen with a clear advantage. Magnus is able to win games in which the advantage is almost invisible, so it was not a problem for the Norwegian genius to win in a few moves. After 4 rounds, Naiditsch leads alone with 3/4, followed by Carlsen and Caruana, half a point behind. It's not easy to keep calm and go ahead with your pace when such a chess powerhouse is chasing you, but the German GM seems to be going through a period of good form. Three rounds to go, and the tournament promises to be extremely interesting to follow!
