Tata Steel 2016 - Video Recap - Round 1

Opening: D37, A36: QGD, English: ultra-symmetrical variation

Player(s): Caruana, Eljanov, So, Giri

GM Alex Yermolinsky recaps Round 1. The Tata Steel 2016 started with three decisive games, and four draws. Carlsen played a solid game against Navara and drew. Caruana won his game against Eljanov. Eljanov is for sure one of the most interesting players among the participants, especially after his exploit at the World Cup last year. But Caruana has established himself as one of the strongest players in the world, and nobody can leave him the initiative hoping to get away with it. So won the match with Giri. It's good to see Wesley win an important game, against the hottest player of the moment. Wesley needs this, to get back in track and be able to show his immense talent. British GM Michael Adams, after the excellent performance at the London Chess Classic - where he finished unbeaten - could not resist the Chinese invasion, and lost to Ding. Ding is showing that he really belongs to the top zone of the list, with consistent good performances. The only female player of the Masters Group, Hou Yifan, drew with Karjakin. The wonder kid - don't take it bad, Magnus, but the 16-year-old Chinese deserves the "title" - Wey Yi drew with the strong Russian GM Evgeny Tomashevsky, and the veteran Loek Van Wely managed to draw with Mamedyarov. All in all, a good start for this year's opening super-tournament.

This is a 5 minute preview.
