Moscow GP, R1 Tiebreaks: Nakamura & So march on

US stars Wesley So and Hikaru Nakamura both won their first tiebreak games with White and then drew with Black to reach the quarterfinals of the FIDE Grand Prix in Moscow. Wesley took advantage of a huge blunder by Jan-Krzysztof Duda in an equal position, while Teimour Radjabov stumbled into a position where he suddenly couldn’t move and was smoothly dispatched by Nakamura. Duda in particular had chances in the second game, but there were to be no comebacks. Nakamura now plays Dubov, while So faces Grischuk, with Jan Gustafsson... & Magnus Carlsen! ...commentating in English on Monday.
