World Cup 2015 - Game Of the Day - Final Game 1

Opening: A05: Reti: King's Indian attack - French variation

Player(s): Svidler, Karjakin

GM Alex Yermolinsky recaps Game 1 of the Finals. This is Peter Svidler's tournament. The Russian ace won the World Cup in 2011, and reached the quarterfinals in 2013. Today he added an important brick to the wall he's building to win the World Cup for the second time. Playing excellent chess, he outplayed Sergey Karjakin, and now leads by a point into the second of the four games. The paths that lead the two finalists to face each other for the title seems to tell the tale: Karjakin had to fight hard and hardest to advance, risking his neck against Onishuck, Andreikin, Mamedyarov, not to mention what happened in the semis with Eljanov, who was won in two clear occasions. Svidler played excellent chess all along, getting rid with apparent ease of Nisipeanu, Radjabov, Topalov, Wei Yi and Giri. We know that in a short 4-game match everything can happen, but looking at today's game, is almost seems like there are two different-class players fighting for the victory. Tomorrow Game 2 at 6AM EDT - 12 noon Europe.
