World Rapid Chess Championship

Magnus Carlsen dominates the World Rapid Chess Championship after day 2. He is with 8,5/10, which is 1,5 points ahead of competition.
Carlsen had a fantastic second day in Kazakhstan. He started with two draws against Gelfand and Dreev, but won two tactical games against Mamedyarov and Tkachiev. With a victory in round 10 against his direct opponent Karjakin, Magnus got in sole first position. With 5 rounds remaining Carlsen is now the clear favorite for the World Rapid Chess title in Astana.
