Grenke Chess Classic: Naiditsch beat Magnus



German number one, GM Arkadij Najditsch, once again demonstrated
he can be Dangerous for World Champion Magnus Carlsen. In the 3rd
round of the Grenke Chess Classic Magnus played a dubious piece
sacrifice for two pawns in a Pirc.Magnus had not enough compensation and
struggled. But in the time scramble phase, Najditsch played unprecise
and Magnus equalized. Magnus thenmade some errors and lost. This was
a very tough loss. I guess it would have been smarter togo for the
Sveshnikov or Accelrated Dragon. To give up material after 10 moves for
uncertain compensation makes no sense. After this win Najditsch leads
with 2 points. He shares the lead with Caruana who beat Aronian who
seems to have seen his better days as chessplayer.Magnus follows
in 3rd Place With 1,5 Points. He must share this Place With Anand,Adams
and Bacrot. Adams beat Baramidze in this round. Thursday is free day
in Baden-Baden. The 4th round will be played on Friday at 3 p.m. (15.00).
Magnus has black against Anand in a revenge Meeting after the World
Championship Match.Caruana has white against Adams in the other
top game of this round. Follow the games live on ChessBomb. Read
