    Shankland wins rapid 1 impressively so Karjakin has to win on demand again with white:

    Swapping queens was a big mistake be Karjakin, it seems he missed Bxc6.

    Looks like he was lost after 36...Qd2 whether he swapped queens or not, 36...Na6 may have been the best try but black is still struggling.

    Fair enough but I still think he missed Bxc6.

    Suspect so as that would explain playing ...Qd2 in the first place.

    In the women's section both Goryachkina and Kosteniuk have missed wins so both matches might go to tie breaks.

    White wins again but this time it is Karjajin with white first so Shankland needs to win on demand.

    Kosteniuk missed a really nice queen trap but it is not as if Tan equalised, and now Tan is losing again.

    It looks like Karjakin can beat Shankland with white in his sleep.

    We have our semi finals

    Carlsen - Duda
    Fedoseev - Karjakin

    Duda has the luxury of a guaranteed two chances to win a match to get to the candidates.

    Shankland almost beat Karjakin with white a third time but 28.Qc1? allowing ..Rd8 sealed his fate.

    Karjakin confirms he missed Bxc6 in an interview.

    Goryachkina - Kosteniuk final. Both have progressed easily in terms of game results with Goryachkina being taken to one tiebreak in her 3-1 win over Stefanova and Kosteniuk winning every match in classical.

    Kosteniuk has a good record against Goryachkina in part because she has played Goryachkina as she has grown up. Their first game occurred when Goryachkina was only 12 and 2103 rated.
    The record is +6 =6 -3 in Kosteniuk's favour but in the last 6 games in 2019 and 2020 Goryachkina has won 3, drawn 2 and only lost 1. This includes the 2019 Candidates where Goryachkina won with white and drew with black.

    This will be an incredibly tight match even though Goryachkina has just taken her rating well over 2600 because Kosteniuk seems to be back to her best and has taken her live rating up around 50 points from the World Cup.

    My pick is both classical games will be won by white and we will see tiebreaks that Goryachkina will eventually win
