Fabiano Caruana is the current champion. The black ones got a position where they didn't have much space, but the white ones had a very restricted bishop with light boxes and a somewhat dubious pawn structure. That was a little better for a while, but the exchange of checkers on move 22 gave Caruana the initiative. In move 33, Caruana made a brilliant sacrifice of pieces and was winning, but serious time problems began to arise, which caused multiple errors.
So he managed to run away, and then White made some more inaccurate decisions and found himself in a losing position. He ended up losing time while trying to make his 46th move. The next game was between Sevian and Caruana. Sevian had the white pieces, and these two players had already played with the same colors in the sixth round of the classic segment of the tournament.
That match ended with a sensational victory for Sevian, as the seeded player played with too much ambition. Instead of opting for a tied variant, Sevian chose the opening of Bishop and was left with a rather complex position. Very soon, several pieces were exchanged, but Caruana had a plan to gain space on the king's side, something that her opponent could not adequately overcome. Soon after, the black ones took up a lot of space and exerted considerable pressure.
This caused Sevian to lose a piece and the game to restore intrigue a bit. Now, if Sevian beat So, there would be another tie; if not, then So would be the champion and there would be a fight for second place, but the most important thing is that Sevian now had to play to win in the last round. I was given a new lease of life by the fact that the tournament wasn't over yet. Today I just wanted to play fast and make some good plays.
If there are opportunities, fine; if I lose, that's fine.
