MCCT Finals 2: Naka close as Magnus hits back

Hikaru Nakamura took a giant step towards reaching the final of the Magnus Carlsen Chess Tour after beating Daniil Dubov 3:1 on Day 2 to take a 2:0 lead. He now needs just one more win to clinch the match. In the other semi-final Magnus Carlsen bounced back to beat Ding Liren and level the score at 1:1. The World Chess Champion won the first two games of the day and then didn’t give Ding a glimmer of hope as he drew the next to win the set with a game to spare.
