Nakamura - Grischuk (Are we expecting 2 quick draws so as to get to the tiebreaks?)

Nepo- Wojtaszek
Two draws today.
Two more draws today in the 25 minute rapid so now on to 10 minutes (plus increment).
After a draw in the first 10 minute game black blunders allowing Nepomniachtchi to win in 28 moves and advance to the final.

Interesting to see their live ratings are 2775.2 each; Grischuk has a nominal edge in rapid 2751.6 to 2749.4 but Nepo is 2814.8 in blitz to 2750

One draw followed by a win for Nepomniachtchi with white to win the match and the event.
