“Overall, a day with a lot of mistakes”, was GM Fabiano Caruana’s summation of day one of the Clutch Chess Finals. The world number two explained that their mistakes were understandable as all the games were complicated and difficult to play with little time on the clock. With a $50,000 prize fund on the line, the players were ready to battle it out to the very end. It's a two-horse race, and the first to reach the magical 9.5 points will clinch the match. Ultimately, GM Wesley So ended the day with the upper hand, going into the final day a point ahead of his rival. Tomorrow promises to be another exciting final day of clutch chess.
