Caruana beats Naiditsch in a sharp battle

Fabiano Caruana

The leader of the tournament Fabiano Caruana obtained a very important victory against the player that showed the most entertaining chess on this event, Arkadij Naiditsch. This win puts him a point ahead of the World Champion with two rounds to go.

Naiditsch seems to have surprised the young Italian in the opening because it took him a lot of time to answer to some of the German’s first moves. The game got very sharp around move 24 when Naiditsch could have gotten an advantage with a very accurate – almost computer-like – play. However, Fabiano proved to be up to the task and made a series of precise moves with very little time on the clock.

When the players reached the time control it was clear that Caruana had a winning advantage and the Italian is well known for his ability to convert such positions.
