Sinquefield 1: Anand grabs lead as Nepo blunders

Vishy Anand grabbed the only win of Round 1 of the 2019 Sinquefield Cup after Ian Nepomniachtchi blundered a rook and the game on move 77 of a hard-fought contest. Elsewhere it was all draws, with Magnus Carlsen commenting after his draw against Anish Giri, “after all my misery in rapid and blitz I was happy to get at least one more or less quiet game”. It turned out afterwards that Giri had been surprisingly close to falling into, “a very cute trap”.
