London Chess Classic 2015 - Round 2 Recap

Opening: A48: King's Indian: East Indian defense

Player(s): Nakamura, Vachier-Lagrave

GM Davis Smerdon recaps Round 2. Five draws in Round 2. This makes a total of 9 drawn games out of 10 played so far. Yet, nobody can say that the first two rounds of the London Chess Classic have been boring. Today the game Nakamura vs. Vachier-Lagrave was amazingly interesting, with the two super-GMs battling hard over the board. Carlsen vs. Caruana was another game worth watching. Carlsen tried to lure Fabiano into some tricky path, but the strong American GM didn't fall for it, and the game ended in a draw. Carlsen is slowly trying to get back to his best play, and two hard-fought draws might help him with his quest. The other three games were not extremely exciting. Giri had a slight advantage vs. Adams, but the English number one was able to equalize. Tomorrow's pairings: Grischuk-Giri, MVL-Topalov, The all-American derby Caruana-Nakamura, Anand-Carlsen, Adams-Aronian. Play starts at 9AM EST.
