Cup Chronicle

2017 Cup Chronicle Issue 1

Day one of the first classical event of the Grand Chess Tour was full of fighting chess and decisive results. Even with slower time controls, it is clear that the players came to play. Levon Aronian, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave and Sergey Karjakin started the tournament off well as they defeated their opponents in a fine manner. Levon Aronian, who has already won two top level events this year, was particularly impressive as he completely annihilated Ian Nepomniachtchi right out of the opening. If the rest of the tournament is even half as exciting as round one, then there is a lot of great chess to look forward to for the fans!
