chess24 Legends 13: Magnus leads after fierce fight

Magnus Carlsen took the lead against Ian Nepomniachtchi on Day 1 of the chess24 Legends of Chess final, but described himself as “really, really unhappy” with the way he played. It was a bruising day on which Magnus couldn’t enjoy his win in the first game since he felt he’d made an “unforgivable” blunder midway through.

The World Champion was shaken, but won what he called “a battle of nerves” in the blitz games to win the first set.
