2017 FIDE World Cup 3.2: Carlsen, Kramnik & Naka all out

Magnus Carlsen was knocked out of the 2017 FIDE World Cup by Bu Xiangzhi on Sunday as a brutal day’s action also saw Vladimir Kramnik beaten by Vassily Ivanchuk and Hikaru Nakamura fall to a crushing attack from Vladimir Fedoseev. Maxim Matlakov matched Levon Aronian’s brilliance of the day before to force tiebreaks, while Anish Giri needed an escape of epic proportions to reach tiebreaks against Sethuraman. Of the world’s Top 15 only Wesley So and Peter Svidler are already through to Round 4.
