Carlsen & So share 1st in St. Louis Rapid & Blitz

Wesley So labelled it “a very shocking day” as he won the final three games to catch Magnus Carlsen and share 1st place despite offering a draw in a winning position in the 1st of those games. Magnus had arrived late and shirtless to the opening game, which he went on to lose to Hikaru Nakamura, but despite saying he was “just not in good shape at all” he was in the driving seat for most of the day. Hikaru was the day’s top scorer with 6.5/9 and finished 3rd, even getting to win with the Bongcloud 1.e4 e5 2.Ke2!? after Jeffery Xiong blew a winning position.
