Tata Steel Masters 2019 / Round 11

by National Life Master Loal Davis

 

Carlsen & Giri Tied For The Lead

 

 

There were four decisive games in the 11th round of Tata Steel Masters 2019.  This now puts Magnus Carlsen and Anish Giri in a tie for the lead with two rounds to go.  A special congratulations to Vladimir Kramnik for finally winning a game; his first in this tourney.  His win over Jorden Van Foreest was a long hard fought affair.  Vladimir is struggling mightily to pull himself out of last place; a rare situation for him.
