Lindores Abbey Rapid Challenge SFs Day 1: Carlsen crushes Nakamura

World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen scored a 3:0 clean sweep against Hikaru Nakamura on Day 1 of the Lindores Abbey Rapid Challenge Semifinals. The other clash was much tighter, with Daniil Dubov and Ding Liren trading wins before Armageddon seemed inevitable. Suddenly, however, Dubov found a way to win the final game. That leaves Ding Liren and Nakamura needing to win on Friday to prolong the matches.
