Lindores Abbey Rapid Challenge Final Day 2: Dubov strikes back

Many had written Daniil Dubov off after he lost Day 1 of the final against Hikaru Nakamura, but he proved the doubters wrong by storming back to level the tie on Day 2. Once again the first game of the day was vital, with Daniil outpreparing Hikaru with the black pieces and going on to grind out a win from a slightly better endgame. He described his strategy to match Hikaru as, “I will play random normal moves quickly,” and it seemed to work! Dubov drew the next three games to set up a $45,000 decider on Wednesday.
