Tata Steel 2019, 4: Giri and Vidit win

Carlsen-Kramnik was the big clash of the day in the Tata Steel Masters, and although it ended in a draw it didn’t disappoint. Vlad said afterwards, “I’m an old man – I just want to enjoy chess!” and for once he could, as he showed some real touches of class to hold Magnus to what was his 21st draw in a row. Elsewhere Giri moved to +1 after beating Rapport, while Vidit defeated Jorden van Foreest after the Dutch youngster blitzed out one move too many when he had a draw in his grasp. It was a bad day for the Foreest family, as Lucas lost the only decisive game of the Challengers.
