|Wesley So – Ian Nepomniachtchi ½ - ½ |
The opening of this game was very unusual but transposed into a King’s Indian-like structure. For a while, this was set to be the first decisive result of the round as So had a nice advantage. Unfortunately, he misplayed the position, moving his knights to the kingside, instead of blockading his opponent’s bishop. In a double-edged position, the players decided to end the matter with a threefold repetition instead of taking unnecessary risks.
