GM Maxime Vachier-Lagrave defeated GM Ian Nepomniachtchi in round seven of the FIDE Candidates Tournament in Yekaterinburg. As the first tiebreak is mutual score, the French player is now the new leader halfway the tournament.
“Of course, it was a crucial game, I thought. A win was not vital but very appreciated,” said Vachier-Lagrave after his big win.
