MVL wins GCT Croatia

A strong run in the blitz secured Maxime Vachier-Lagrave a clear first place at the Grand Chess Tour Croatia tournament in Zagreb. After the rapid and still after the first day of blitz Ian Nepomniachtchi led the field, but the challenger had a poor last day and was also overtaken by Giri and Vishy Anand who did very well at 51, while for the seven years older Garry Kasparov the age and lack of preparation showed with a meagre 2,5 out of 18 in the blitz. The tour concludes in August in St. Louis.
