Fabiano Caruana played this comfortably and the win takes him to 2800 in the live ratings. Caruana’s powerful light squared bishop was quite an advantage and an active Black King pitched in. Andrejkin went down in the blaze of a Kingside attack. Enjoy the game with Chess King in the extended post. You can read a full report on the round at Chess Blog.
