Cup Chronicle

2019 Cup Chronicle Issue 2

Viswanathan Anand remains on top of the leaderboard after a peaceful second day in Saint Louis. Although all the games ended in a draw, the results weren’t indicative of the fights that ensued across the board. Ian Nepomniachtchi missed a golden opportunity to recover from his first round loss, after Fabiana Caruana blundered, whereas Anish Giri did not manage to convert his extra pawn against Levon Aronian. World Champion Magnus Carlsen extended his undefeated streak to 81 games after drawing his longtime rival Viswanathan Anand. Tomorrow, he will be facing his 2018 World Championship challenger Fabiano Caruana with the white pieces, while the leader of the tournament will have the black pieces against Levon Aronian.
