Moscow GP, R1.1: So, Aronian & Shak on the brink

Wesley So, Levon Aronian and Shakhriyar Mamedyarov must all win on demand on Saturday or they’re out of the Moscow Grand Prix. They were beaten by Jan-Krzysztof Duda, Ian Nepomniachtchi and Radek Wojtaszek on an opening day that had threatened to be dominated by draws. Games ended in 12, 14, 18 and 23 moves, though the remaining Giri-Dubov draw was a thriller which had top seed Anish Giri on the ropes.
