Tata Steel 2015 Round 12

Opening: D37, E06, A13: QGD, Reti: King's Indian Attack, English Opening

Player(s): Ding, Carlsen, Vachier-Lagrave, Aronian, Giri, So

GM Lars Bo Hansen recaps Round 12. One imprecision and you're done. This is modern chess, at the top level. Wesley So today wanted to win, to catch Magnus Carlsen up there, but he found himself in trouble against the top Hollander Anish Giri, and went on playing a lost Queen ending for 7 hours and 110 moves, until Giri found his way to push the extra pawn down to the 8th rank, forcing a disappointed Wesly to resignation. Carlsen drew with Ding Liren, and now Giri is in second alone, half a point behind the World Champion. Saric won his game with Wojtaszek, and the rest of the games ended in draw. A full point behing Magnus we find MVL, Wesley So and Ding Liren. Five players could still win the tournament, but tomorrow Magnus has white against Saric, and this is not the Olympiad! Last round starts at 6AM EST - 12:00 CET. Very early for the fans from the U.S., but it's worth the early bird wake.
