Reggio Emilia: Vassily Ivanchuk’с Fourth Лосс in a Row

The brilliant Ukrainian, Vassily Ivanchuk, lost fourth game in a row. That happened in the 8th round of a super-tournament Reggio Emilia that takes place in Italy.

In an encounter against Caruana, Ivanchuk as White chose a calm and solid «alignment of forces». However, Italian managed to gradually line up his pawns on the fifth row and grab the initiative. 

(The position after 20…c5!).

Meanwhile, the leader Nakamura messed up things in the French Defence, which he is supposed to be acquainted with (American himself used a similar continuation with White) and lost against Morozevich. 

In an intense struggle Giri overpowered Vitiugov.
