    Esipenko should have beaten Dubov in the game of their match but he blew it.

    For Blitz ratings, Carlsen (2892) is closing in on Naka (3000).

    MVL is up a whopping 44.8 to 2838 and #4, following GCT Zagreb Blitz tournament earlier in July.
    Anand up 40.4 to 2825.4 #5 from the same tournament, not bad for an old man.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    At the halfway point of the blitz portion in St Louis, Naka has dropped to 2892.0 also. In spite of outright first position and undefeated currently. He could well have another strong day and still drop below Magnus.

    This has now occurred, and Magnus reclaims #1 in Blitz.

    Rapport (2773) enters the top 10 with a strong performance in Norway. At 25, he's the youngest currently in the top 10, and one of 5 twenty-somethings.

    As mentioned on another thread, Alireza has broken into the top 10, at age 18.
