Grand Swiss 5: Anything Magnus can do…

Fabiano Caruana matched Magnus Carlsen’s great escape by surviving a dead lost position, against Luke McShane in Round 5 of the FIDE Chess.com Grand Swiss. Co-leaders Wang Hao and Parham Maghsoodloo also drew a topsy-turvy game to allow Vladimir Fedoseev, Alexander Grischuk and Alexei Shirov to join them in a 7-man leading pack. Shirov was the only player not paired against another leader in Round 6, but Black against Carlsen is arguably not the easiest pairing in chess! Magnus followed Shirov’s example to beat Ganguly in a razor-sharp Sicilian.
