Paris Rapid & Blitz 3: Wesley So wins the Rapid

Wesley So leads Ian Nepomniachtchi by a point going into the 18 rounds of blitz on Monday and Tuesday after becoming the only player to win two games on any day of the rapid section of the Paris Rapid & Blitz. The US Champion brilliantly defeated Fabiano Caruana with the black pieces before taking advantage of a blunder by MVL in the next round. Nepo showed glimpsed of his brilliant best to take 2nd, while Etienne Bacrot beat Caruana to finish 3rd before he’s replaced by his blitz stunt double Vladimir Kramnik.
