Lindores Abbey Rapid Challenge SFs Day 2: Hikaru hits back | Dubov in final

Daniil Dubov is in the Lindores Abbey Rapid Challenge final after demolishing Ding Liren 2.5:0.5, but we still don’t know who he’ll play. Hikaru Nakamura came back to beat Magnus Carlsen 2.5:1.5 and set up a decider on Saturday after the fate of the match turned on the first game of the day. Hikaru ran into some powerful opening preparation and may objectively have been lost, but Magnus got behind on the clock and rejected a draw only to stumble into a mating net. He had chances in the next game, but ultimately Hikaru didn’t let his lead slip.
