Round 4 live commentary
GM Vladimir Dimitrov (who will comment the upcoming Topalov – Kamsky match live on Chessdom) will be the commentator for the Corus A game between GM Levon Aronian and GM Magnus Carlsen.
GM Valentin Iotov will exclusively comment GM Wesley So – GM Abhijeet Gupta. GM Iotov is from the same generation of young talents. He is well acquainted with the style of both players and has actually played with GM Gupta during the U12 World Championship in Oropesa. “I didn’t get opening advantage with the white pieces and later on I went to win an interesting pawn ending.”
Since this game GM Iotov has won multiple strong championships, made 5,0/5 in the first rounds of the Olympiad in Dresden, and was champion of Bulgaria in 2006.
