GRENKE Chess 5: 14-year-old Keymer grabs 1st win

After four losses in a row 14-year-old Vincent Keymer finally got off the mark in his first supertournament on Wednesday with the only win of Round 5 of the GRENKE Chess Classic. He did it in style, as his victory over Georg Meier featured a study-like endgame victory. Magnus Carlsen also tried to weave his magic against Arkadij Naiditsch, but had to concede a draw after a fascinating 6-hour struggle. Svidler-Vallejo was also hard-fought, while Anand-Caruana and MVL-Aronian had a “day before the rest day” feel to them.
