Chessable Masters 13: Magnus leads despite “insanity”

“It was three and a half games that were pretty solid and then insanity ensued!” said Magnus Carlsen after scraping home to beat Anish Giri 3.5:2.5 in the first set of the Chessable Masters final. A trademark Carlsen endgame win in Game 2 had looked like being enough until Giri managed to win on demand with the black pieces in Game 4. He almost took the lead before Magnus sealed victory in a final blitz game where he disconnected for almost two minutes. Magnus now has a chance to win the title on Saturday.
