29.07.2018 17:24 Chess : Magnus Carlsen serene while Fabiano Caruana faces hectic period
Magnus Carlsen got off to a strong start at Biel this week as the 27-year-old world chess champion ground out victories by his favourite formula of a strong will to win, an inventive approach and accurate calculation. However, Azerbaijan’s world No 3, Shak Mamedyarov, also proved to be in fine form and took a half-point lead in Friday’s sixth round (of 10). Mamedyarov has 4/6, Carlsen 3.5/6. Carlsen beat the Czech Republic’s David Navara by giving up his queen for rook, bishop and knight, then defeated France’s Maxime Vachier-Lagrave by a single tempo in a complex four-rook endgame. He drew a sharp Sicilian against the eight-time Russian chess champion Peter Svidler before a setback when he only halved with the Swiss tailender Nico Georgiadis. While Carlsen carefully rations his outings before his world title defence in London starting on ...
