London Chess Classic 2017 – Round 7. Congratulations to Luke McShane winner of the British KO Championship 2017.  Live OVER but watch again. 

It was an exciting day.  There was a lot of tension on stage and in the auditorium.  But no-one is leaving until the big finish. They will stay until the end.  Watch your favourites in the British knockout Championship.  Drop in and take a look.

Head to head were:

GM Hikaru Nakamura, GM Fabiano Caruana, GM Wesley So, GM Levon Aronian. Grand Master Ian Nepomniachtchi, GM Magnus Carlsen, GM Mickey Adams, GM Sergey Karjakin. And GM Vishy Anand, and GM Maxime Vachier-Lagrave vie for the 2017 Grand Chess Tour and 2017 London Chess Classic Winners’ Crown.

Commentary provided by GM Cristian Chirila, GM Yasser Seirawan, and WGM Jennifer Shahade.  Also GM Maurice Ashley reporting live from London.

John Saunders report on Round 6:

There was just one decisive game but this was by some way the most exciting round of the competition so far.  US number one Fabiano Caruana retained his lead with a draw against Maxime Vachier-Lagrave. But it was reduced to just half a point when Ian Nepomniachtchi prevailed against the home player Mickey Adams in a rook and pawn endgame to move into the second spot.

The star game of the day was Kikaru Nakamura vesus Magnus Carlsen. This ended in a draw after the American squandered a golden opportunity to defeat the world champion.  The other two games also had considerable merit.

Wander around the centre where you will find lots of Chess stuff you can buy or just look at.

Olympia is a great looking building.  Worth taking a stroll and inside and out.
