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

Opening: C92, E15: Ruy Lopez: closed, Queen's Indian: Nimzovich variation (exaggerated fianchetto)

Player(s): Svidler, Giri, Karjakin, Eljanov

GM Max Dlugy recaps Day 1 of the Semifinals. the four survivors started today the battle which will decide the two finalists of the 2015 FIDE World Cup. Peter Svidler, the winner of the 2011 World Cup, today won Game 1 against Giri. Anish now is in a must-win situation, and tomorrow in Game 2 he will have to face Svidler with the black pieces. Giri is a very strong player, and anything can still happen, but Peter's experience in these important events is huge. It won't be easy for the younger super-GM to force Svidler into the tiebreaks. Pavel Eljanov, whose tournament so far has been nothing less than stunning, drew Sergey Karjakin. According to Dlugy's analysis, Pavel missed a good chance to go pawn-up, posing some serious threat to his strong opponent. Tomorrow Game 2 at 6AM EDT (12 noon Europe).
