Candidates Round 2 mid-game report

In Radjabov – Ivanchuk, Black is playing a Dutch; fans of that defense don’t often get a chance to see it played at the highest level.

Grischuk – Svindler is a first for the tournament – White opened with e4 (and there was much rejoicing!). Carlsen – Kramnik started with an English opening of sorts and is now looking to be a master class in endgame play – probably worth your study, if you don’t have any other plans this Saturday.

As always, games can be seen on the official site or Chessbomb.
