Tata Steel Chess round-up

by ChessBase
1/17/2018 – Round five was played in Hilversum, and we saw three decisive games. Hou Yifan's woes continue as she lost to Peter Svidler — his first win of the tournament. Wesley So also got his first win, dealing Adhiban his third loss. Shakhriyar Mamedyarov beat Fabiano Caruana to pull even with Anish Giri and Viswanathan Anand for the tournament lead. Anton Korobov scored again in the Challengers and now leads alone. The 2018 Tata Steel Masters and Challengers takes place January 13th to 28th. Eleven of the thirteen rounds are played in the traditional venue in Wijk aan Zee, the Netherlands, however two rounds are played "on tour", in Hilversum on January 17th and in Groningen on January 24th. | Photo: TataSteelChess.com

The guy with the glasses is trying too hard. Silly and witty are two different things .

GM Robin and FM Tex is a very exciting commentary combo. Compelling and holding the audiences I think, with fine, tight, even fierce chat of the 'give us some more' variety!!

"Call me old school but I dislike the automated game annotations. It lacks the human touch. I prefer human annotated games. I have stopped enjoying reading chessbase reports."

At least, you still have the great Daniel King video reports! Daniel follows this tournament.

Could the Candidates be reluctant to show their best opening preparation before the Candidates' tournament?

You have to love Magnus's Anish comment: "For all the banter and all the nonsense, he's still very strong."
