Mamedyarov & MVL reach Riga Grand Prix final

Shakhriyar Mamedyarov and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave will contest the Riga Grand Prix final from Monday after winning their semifinals without the need for tiebreaks. Mamedyarov unleashed a quiet novelty on move 14 and just one move later was winning against Wesley So, who was unable to mount a comeback in the second game. MVL-Grischuk witnessed two thrillers, with Alexander Grischuk describing their second clash as a “fantastic game” by the French no. 1.
