Wesley So is not only currently the sole leader at Paris GCT, but he got there with 5 decisive games out of 6 rounds. This is an impressive display of fighting chess, especially compared to his closest rivals, Levon Aronian and Sergey Karjakin, who have 4 draws each.

One of So’s most impressive games was his victory against Maxime Vachier-Lagrave. It’s rare that you see a queen so effectively dominated by a rook and bishop.

Don’t miss the final day of rapid chess tomorrow at 8 a.m. EST.

Watch live games and commentary by GM Yasser Seirawan, IM Jovanka Houska, GM Alejandro Ramirez, GM Maurice Ashley and GM Romain Edouard on the Official Website.
