World Cup 2015 - Game Of the Day - Semifinal Game 2

Opening: B18, A29: Caro-Kann: classical, English: four knights, kingside fianchetto

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

GM Alex Yermolinsky recaps Day 2 of the Semifinals. Peter Svidler, Mr. Seven-Times-Russian-Champion, is the first finalist of the 2015 FIDE World Chess Cup. In a recent interview, Peter said: "I'm not really interested in winning this event. I already have a trophy from the World Cup (2011). What I want is a trophy form the World Championship. So, getting to the finals is the main goal". Well, the first step into the path to the World Championship is done! Congratulations to the friendly and very strong GM from St. Petersburg. Anish Giri, his much younger and higher rated opponent, tried to pose some problems to Svidler during the game, but to no avail. Eljanov and Karjakin deliberately chose to decide their match on tiebreaks, with a 13-move draw today. This might be good for Karjakin, who won most of his matches on tiebreaks in this World Cup, whereas Eljanov played excellent chess in the classical time control, having to come to Rapid play only once. But the prize at stake is really important (not only money-wise), and anything can happen. Tomorrow Eljanov and Karjakin will give us the second finalist's name, starting at 6AM EDT - 12 noon Europe.

This is a 5 minute preview.
