I am going to be summarizing the action from the Magnus Carlsen Invitational and specifically taking a look at arguably the best game of the preliminary stage — So v Aronian from round 6. A beautiful display by an in-form Wesley So.

But first, a warm-up question from Nepomniachtchi v Pichot. The Argentinian wildcard just played the move ...Nf5 which at first glance looks promising for Black. What did he miss?


Lawrence will also take a look at some of the upcoming events in the calendar.
