Tata Steel 2016 - Video Recap - Round 10

Opening: C83: Ruy Lopez: open, classical defense

Player(s): Caruana, Wei

IM Christof Sielecki recaps Round 10. Caruana wins his game with the Chinese wunderkind and keeps the tournament alive. Fabiano chose the Ruy Lopez, and went for the old classic 9.c3 variation. Wei spent a lot of time, as if he didn't know how to deal with the variation. With Caruana blitzing out the moves, Wei got in a worse position, and lost is "c" pawn without compensation. From there on, Caruana played very well and won a nice game. This is the first loss for the young Chinese star. Magnus and Giri took a day off, playing an uneventful draw. This allowed Caruana to get closer to the leader: now Magnus leads with 7 points, followed by Fabiano only half a point behind. Too bad they have already played each other: a "match" at this point of the tournament would have been enthralling. Ding vs. Van Wely was a rollercoaster; probably the most exciting game in today's round. Van Wely outplayed the strong Chinese GM, and got in a winning position; then they went into a time scramble before time control and the fast moving led Ding to a slight advantage. At that point Loek did a great job not losing the game. A true fight over the board! Karjakin, playing Adams, ran into disaster after long castle; Adams won his first game in the tournament, and in good style too. Hou Yifan lost against Eljanov who's having an up-and-down event. After 10 rounds and with three rounds to go, Carlsen leads solo with 7 points, followed by Caruana with 6.5, So, Giri, Ding and Eljanov with 5.5, then Wei and Mamedyarov with 5. Tomorrow is a rest day. Friday Carlsen plays Hou with white, and Caruana plays Mamedyarov with black.
