That was the only decisive game of Round 3 of the London Chess Classic, but we got to watch some high quality chess. Wesley So needed to dig very deep to escape against Levon Aronian, Vladimir Kramnik showed ingenuity against Fabiano Caruana while Maxime Vachier-Lagrave needed more than a little help from Veselin Topalov. Anish Giri won a pawn out of nowhere but couldn’t prevent Mickey Adams finally getting off the mark.
The London Chess Classic Round 4 games on Monday (two hours later at the “weekday” time of 17:00 CET) feature two all-2800 clashes, Caruana-Aronian and Kramnik-MVL, while leader So has Black against Giri. Tune in from 15:00 CET for all the action, while you can replay the Round 3 show, including all the player interviews, below:
