The second game of the match in Prague proved no less tense than the first, but today, David Navara did not manage to save a slightly inferior position.  

Today, Wesley So had greater winning chances, which he realised. Black's main problem was the passivity of his king; several times, the Czech could have played better, but even a very strong GM cannot play with computer accuracy at every move. 

SO - NAVARA

53....h6 In a hopeless position, David tries his last chance, but it does not work. The threat is 53...Rxf5.    
54.Rd7! Ra4 55.Ke7 Rd4 56.f6 1-0

Game three starts today at 17.00 Moscow time, 15.00 London time.
