Wijk R10: Magnus Carlsen wins, takes sole lead

1/23/2008 – Yesterday the Norwegian was very unlucky to blunder one move before the time control. Today he was in dire time pressure again, and forced to blitz it out against Dutch GM Loek van Wely. But this time Magnus turned a completely lost position into a win, and with it regained the sole lead in this tournament. Ivanchuk beat Eljanov with black. Express report.

Group A

Magnus Carlsen showed the kind of luck that wins tournaments, by swindling his way out of a ghastly position against van Wely. With both players down to just seconds, between moves 39 and 41, the observers watched Fritz's assessment go from +7 to -5!

Here 39.Qe7 wins, but Loek van Wely, in desperate time trouble (as was his opponent) went astray: 39.Qe3? Qxd5+ 40.Kg3 Nc4. The position is a draw, but White digs himself into a deeper hole: 41.Qf2? Qd3+ 42.Kg2 Be4+ 43.Rxe4 Qxe4+ 44.Kf1 Qd3+ 45.Qe2 Nd2+ 46.Ke1 Nf3+ 47.Kf1 Nxh2+ 48.Ke1 Bc3+ 49.Kf2 g3+ and mate to follow. 0-1. A very unloeky day for the Dutch grandmaster, if you will pardon the pun.

Group C

The big story of this group in recent days had been the tragedy of Arik Braun. After seven rounds, he needed only one out of three for a GM normm. Since then, he has failed to add to his score, and today suffered his fourth successive loss, against Irina Krush.

The veterans continue to provide marvellous entertainment. The oldest player of all, the remarkable Victor Korchnoi, took the tournament lead, after capitalising on a blunder from Portisch.

Timman and Ljubojevic, meanwhile, decided to test out Topalov's bombshell novelty from yesterday. Strangely, Ljubo thought for almost an hour at move 13, before uncorking the recommended computer improvement four moves later. An exceedingly complicatd game ended in Black's favour, so 12.Nxf7 only has 50% in practice!
