Maxime Vachier-Lagrave has been one of the first players to finish his game in round 7 of the Tata Steel main tournament, making use of Ivan Saric's horrible blunder.


In a sharp, typical Najdorf fight both opponents were resourceful and worth each other, until...
31.Rd2?? Missing an elementary textbook combination. After 31.Qc1 axb2 32.Rxb2 Black has to find 32...Qa4+! (32...Qa3+ 33.Kb1 Qd3+ 34.Rc2 gives White winning chances as there is no perpetual) 33.Kb1 (or 33.Ra2 Qd4+ 34.Rb2 Qa4+) 33...Rd8, and White should repeat moves: 34.Rd2 (or 34.Rc2) 34...Rb8+ 35.Rb2 Rd8.
31...axb2+ 32.Kb1 Qa2+!, and White resigned due to mate in 2. 0-1

This victory brings Vachier closer to the leaders with 4.5 points out of 7. Most of the round 7 games are still underway.
