2021 Superbet Chess Classic - Day 1 Recap

All five games were drawn today as the 2021 Grand Chess Tour kicked off with its first event of the year, the 2021 Superbet Chess Classic, a 10-player classical round-robin taking place in Bucharest, Romania. While three of the games were drawn after just an hour of play, all eyes were on local favorite GM Bogdan-Daniel Deac, who missed a serious chance to upset one of the tournament favorites, GM Anish Giri.
