Tata Steel 7: Fabi, Alireza, Anish & Jorden lead

Fabiano Caruana, Alireza Firouzja, Anish Giri and Jorden van Foreest all won to lead the 2021 Tata Steel Chess Masters in Wijk aan Zee after an explosive 7th round that also saw 18-year-old Andrey Esipenko beat Radek Wojtaszek with the black pieces. The only game where the balance was never upset saw Harikrishna vary from his Chessable course on move 7 to frustrate Magnus Carlsen again. The leader before the round, Nils Grandelius, followed recommendations from his opponent Anish Giri’s Najdorf Chessable repertoire for an astonishing 25 moves only to lose a tricky ending.
