Norway Chess Tournament 2016 - GOTD Round 1

Opening: E15: Queen's Indian: Nimzovich variation (exaggerated fianchetto)

Player(s): Carlsen, Harikrishna

GM Alex Yermolinsky recaps Round 1. There are two great news about Round 1 of the Altibox Norway chess tournament: Anish Giri interrupted a fastidious streak of draws after the Candidates', winning against Eljanov; Magnus Carlsen dominated Harikrishna and won the first round of a tournament after over two years. With Kramnik beating the qualified Swedish GM Grandelius, all the top three guys won with white today, in a rather spectacular round. Carlsen's game went down to a crazy time-scramble, and the world champion showed once again that he can think really fast. MVL wasn't able to get a lot out of the opening, and LI Chao found a nice tactic to enter an opposite-color bishop endgame, which he held comfortably. Aronian found himself in trouble; for a while Topalov had the upper hand in the game, but then the Bulgarian ace failed to find the determination to bring home the full point. An exciting first round of a tournament that promises to be really interesting!
