Sinquefield Cup 3: Grischuk beats Nakamura

Another day, another marathon in St. Louis, as Alexander Grischuk took 89 moves and over six hours to beat Hikaru Nakamura and join a 4-way tie for the lead. His co-leaders Levon Aronian and Magnus Carlsen drew a quiet game, though questions remained about a brief skirmish in which Levon could have tried for more. The other leader, Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, said both he and Fabiano Caruana “played like an engine” in a fighting draw, while MVL-So and Karjakin-Anand never threatened to see blood spilt.
