It was indeed a dramatic end as both Karjakin and Vachier-Lagrave suffered heartbreaking losses in the final round, thus missing their opportunity for tiebreak plays with our boy.

“It’s a miracle, really...”, were Wesley’s words at the closing ceremony.

Congratulations!

Nobody can dominate in blitz really. It's a matter of luck and familiarity because nobody can think accurately at that speed. But in rapid where there is limited time to think Wesley is superior.

So 1st In Rapid At Paris Grand Chess Tour
PeterDoggers
Jun 22, 2018

Image

Despite drawing all his games today, Wesley So retained his lead at the Paris Grand Chess Tour. Before the start of the blitz, Sergey Karjakin and Hikaru Nakamura are trailing him by one point.

"So" mostly stood for "solid" today, as the tournament leader split the point with three of his closest rivals: Nakamura, Karjakin, and Anand. Asked whether he was happy with his score, So replied: "I don't think it could have gone any other way."

back to back losses by Wesley, first to Karjakin and Grishuk in blitz. The first loss allowed Karjakin to overtake Wesley and the 2nd loss puts Wesley on solo 3rd. Hopes he can come back strong in the succeeding games.

Wesley So prevails in Leon
by Antonio Pereira

Image

7/9/2018 – In a very tense match, Wesley So defeated Paco Vallejo in the blitz tiebreak rounds despite the fact that the Spaniard obtained better positions in most of the games. So played offbeat openings that did not quite work out in his favour, but showed great tenacity in the ensuing positions. This was Wesley's second consecutive tournament victory in Leon.
