MCCT Finals: Carlsen and So score max points

Magnus Carlsen blew Jan-Krzysztof Duda away in 18 moves as the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour Finals began before going on to wrap up match victory with a game to spare after Duda fell for a fiendish trick in the 2nd game. Wesley So kept pace with Magnus by also winning in rapid chess, over Shakhriyar Mamedyarov.

The remaining matches went to a playoff, where Anish Giri and Vladislav Artemiev defeated Hikaru Nakamura and Teimour Radjabov in blitz, before Aronian-MVL was decided in Maxime’s favour only in Armageddon.

You can replay all the games from Round 1 of the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour using the selector below. 

And here’s the day’s live commentary from David Howell, Jovanka Houska and Kaja Snare in Oslo. 

And from Peter Leko and Lawrence Trent. 

It was a dramatic first day of the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour Finals, including comeback wins for MVL and Anish Giri.

There are 3 points for a win in rapid chess, while the points are split 2:1 for a match decided in a playoff. That produced the following standings after Round 1.

The changes from the pre-tournament standings — which were based on the players’ performance in the Tour before the Finals — are that Giri has climbed above Radjabov, while Artemiev has climbed above Nakamura. 

COME BACK LATER FOR MORE ANALYSIS AND PLAYER QUOTES, while for now here are the interviews with Magnus Carlsen and Anish Giri after their match.
