Cup Chronicle

2019 Cup Chronicles Issue 6

The players returned to action today but the rest day did not seem to impact the player standings in the tournament, as all of the round 6 games ended in a draw. Each player is unique in how they choose to spend their day off; Sergey Karjakin played in an online Fischer Random qualifier, Anish Giri went to the Saint Louis Zoo, and Magnus Carlsen was invited to throw the first pitch for the Cardinals in their game against the Colorado Rockies. The World Champion discussed his experience with Maurice Ashley, explaining how uncomfortable and nervous he felt in an unfamiliar territory. Unfortunately, these fun-filled activities did not influence their play over the board as the games unfolded slowly.
