9th Bilbao Masters Final 2016 (7)
All games drawn in Bilbao Round 7
Mark Crowther - Wednesday 20th July 2016
Bilbao Round 7 saw no change in the relative scores as all the games were drawn. Magnus Carlsen had slight pressure throughout against Wei Yi without ever being objectively much better. Careful calculation saw Wei Yi hold the draw. Hikaru Nakamura looked like he was getting somewhere against Wesley So but in the end the game petered out to a draw. Anish Giri had very little advantage against Sergey Karjakin and they traded to a draw.
Round 7 standings: Carlsen 12, Nakamura 9, Wei Yi 8, Giri 6, Karjakin 6, So 6
Round 8 pairings 3pm Thursday 21st July 2016. So-Giri, Karjakin-Carlsen, Wei Yi-Nakamura
