Ian Nepomniachtchi beat Alireza Firouzja from the white side of a double-edged Sicilian to grab the sole lead at the Candidates Tournament in Madrid. The three remaining games finished drawn, with Ding Liren failing to defeat Fabiano Caruana from a slightly superior position. Thus, former co-leader Caruana is now in sole second place, a half point behind Nepomniachtchi. | Photo: FIDE / Stev Bonhage
