Norway chess 2015 - GOTD Round 4

Opening: C84: Ruy Lopez: closed defense

Player(s): Anand, Carlsen

GM Lars Bo Hansen recaps Round 4. It's probably the first time we happen to see Carlsen with a -3 score after 4 rounds, since he became Numero Uno. And it's rather shoking, in all honesty. Today Anand played a very good game, even missing an earlier win, and we know how strong the Indian chess hero is, but it looked like Carlsen was not able to oppose any serious resistance. The World Champion admitted his difficult moment when interviewed: "Horrible play. I misjudged the position completely, then I continued to play badly." Magnus needs the rest day, probably more than anyone else in the field. We all hope he will be able to bounce back in the second part of the event, and offer us great games, as usual. Meanwhile former World Champion Veselin Topalov won convincingly against Aronian, to take the sole lead. Grischuk won against the other Norwegian, Caruana drew with MVL, and Nakamura drew Giri. After 4 rounds, Topalov leads with 3.5 points, followed by Nakamura with 3. Anand and Giri share 3rd-4th with 2.5 and then Caruana, Grischuk and MVL with 2. Aronian and Hammer at 1 point and Carlsen 0.5. Play resumes Sunday June 21st at 10:00AM EDT - 16:00 Central European Time.
