Norway chess 2015 - GOTD Round 7

Opening: A30: English: symmetrical, Botvinnik system reversed

Player(s): Nakamura, Grischuk

GM John Fedorowicz recaps Round 7. Quite a soporiferous round in Norway, with Magnus and MVL taking an extra day off, followed shortly by Anand and Aronian. Draw in 17 moves is not the best thing to write about, despite all the efforts of the experts on Twitter. Standings-wise, the most interesting game was Topalov vs. Caruana. Veselin and Fabiano played a good 44-move game, which ended in a draw. Nakamura played very solid chess against Grischuk, who - guess what? - had to fight again with the clock. Hammer and Giri tried to add some spice to this boring round, but none of them found a way to get ahead in the ending, and the game ended in a draw by repetition. Everything goes Topalov's way, obviously. With two rounds to go, the Bulgarian leads by 1.5 points, and it's very unlikely that anyone will catch him on top. Tomorrow Grischuk-Caruana, Giri-Topalov, Anand-Hammer, Carlsen-Aronian and Nakamura MVL.

This is a 5 minute preview.
