Nakamura and MVL reach Grand Chess Tour final

Hikaru Nakamura and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave both won four of their last five rapid and blitz games to reach the final of the 2018 Grand Chess Tour, with Maxime also overtaking Magnus Carlsen as the blitz world no. 1. Their opponents, Fabiano Caruana and Levon Aronian, scored only a single consolation win each and will now play a 3rd place playoff. The British Knockout Championship final will be between Luke McShane and Gawain Jones after they overcame favourites Mickey Adams and David Howell.
