European Club Cup 2022 R2: Gukesh does a Zlatan against Zoltan
D Gukesh played like Zlatan Ibrahimović does in a football match. In the second round, the 16-year-old just brutally destroyed his opponent, GM Zoltan Varga. SK Dunajska Streda lost to his team, CSU ASE Superbet 0.5-5.5. Vishy Anand was rested and the new Romania no.1, Richard Rapport played in his stead. Pentala Harikrishna, Arjun Erigaisi and Nihal Sarin drew their respective games. Vidit Gujrathi won a prolonged encounter which he should have much before. The legend, Anand will return to the board once again in the third round as he will battle against GM Rauf Mamedov. Round 3 starts today at 2 p.m. local time, 5:30 p.m. IST. Photo: Ashwin Subramanian
Carlsen beats Naumann
Yes, Magnus Carlsen registered his first victory against a German GM Alexander Naumann. GM Eric Hansen also made his debut for Carlsen's team, Offerspill Chess Club. They defeated Schachgesellschaft Solingen 5.5-0.5. The world champion will take a rest in the third round when their team faces Schachgesellschaft Riehen.
CSU ASE Superbet - SK Dunajska Streda: 5-1
GM D Gukesh (2732) was playing with the sole intention of winning his game against GM Zoltan Varga (2401).
Gukesh - Zoltan
If 8.g4 was any indication of what Gukesh is planning to do, he made it abundantly clear with 17.f5. White's king is at h1, g4 can be captured which opens the h-file for the rook. The e5-pawn is hanging too. Black has a plethora of capture choices and yet all of them only makes things worse for Black.
Captain of CSU ASE Superbet, GM FST Ivan Sokolov expressed gratitude towards the team sponsors and Vishy Anand in a tweet
