MDI 2, Day 2: Jobava dances to win over Grischuk

Baadur Jobava danced his way to a 6.5:5.5 win over Alexander Grischuk as the most anticipated Round 1 match-up went down to the final game. It was the same in Howell-Van Foreest, which the English Grandmaster clinched 7:5 after an incredible battle, while there were comfortable wins in the day’s earlier matches. Nils Grandelius ousted Alexei Shirov 6.5:1.5, while Laurent Fressinet shocked Peter Svidler 6.5:2.5. It’s Giri-Grandelius, Dubov-Fressinet, Vidit-Howell and Navara-Jobava in the quarterfinals.
