Carlsen-Aronian and So-Le in the semi-finals

Magnus Carlsen declared himself “very unhappy” to lose a game to Anish Giri, but his 5.5:1.5 victory set up a chess24 Banter Series semi-final against Levon Aronian, who won the last three games to clinch a thriller against Alexander Grischuk. Wesley So went one better and won the last four games in a row to shock Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, though the overall shock of the tournament so far has been his semi-final opponent Liem Quang Le. The one qualifier to reach the quarterfinals went on to conquer world no. 2 Fabiano Caruana 5.5:3.5.
