Jerusalem GP R1 Tiebreaks: Mamedyarov falls

Shakhriyar Mamedyarov is out of the race to qualify for the 2020 Candidates Tournament (unless Azerbaijan make the Russian organisers a wild card offer they can’t refuse!) after he took the lead but went on to lose to Dmitry Jakovenko in tiebreaks. The battle is now between Maxime Vachier-Lagrave and Ian Nepomniachtchi, who won their tiebreaks 2:0, with Wesley So the only other player still in contention. So plays Nepo next in the quarterfinals and could help Maxime, since a win for Wesley would let MVL wrap up Candidates qualification this weekend.
