Default 3rd Sinquefield Cup 2015

This is not as strong as last year. The loss of just a few points has taken the average Elo from just above 2800 in 2014 to just under this year.

It is in St Louis. I wonder if Sam Sloan will try to go along?

This is the field:
Magnus Carlsen (2853) NOR
Viswanathan Anand (2816) IND
Veselin Topalov (2816) BUL
Hikaru Nakamura (2814) USA
Fabiano Caruana (2797) USA
Anish Giri (2791) NED
Wesley So (2780) USA
Alexander Grischuk (2771) RUS
Levon Aronian (2765)
Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (2731) FRA.

Pretty strong!

Wesley So. Interesting. Going back to the debacle he had. Wesley blamed everybody except himself. No credit to Sam Sevian who beat him soundly in
the US champioship. It was this and that why he lost that game, forfeited etc etc. Magnus has to be hurting after that nightmare in Norway. I
think he will rebouind and win this.

Nakamura looks lost vs Topalov . Nice comeback win for Carlsen today.Anand loses again.

I'm not normally a fan of either Topalov or his padlock beard but anyone who annihilates the Berlin, as he did to Nakamura yesterday, deserves tremendous respect.
