Tata Steel 2018, 3: Vishy wins a beauty

“It’s a pity there are no beauty prizes”, said Vishy Anand after ending a sparkling victory over Fabiano Caruana with a move that earned a double exclam and the hashtag #stillgotit from Magnus Carlsen. That win gave Vishy the joint lead alongside Anish Giri on an otherwise quiet day that saw the key encounters end in draws. The other winner was Gawain Jones, who outplayed Adhiban to make it a dream start to his Tata Steel Masters debut. In the Challengers Anton Korobov and Vidit won to lead on 2.5/3.
