The first round of Grenke Chess Classic was played yesterday.

The only decisive game finished in Fabiano Caruana's favor. He defeated Georg Meier of Germany. Italian has prepared for the French defence thoroughly as long as it is usually played by his opponent. According to Fabiano close to move 19 he couldn't remember the correct continuation and if Black hasn't played 20...Kc8 he wouldn't be able to find such advantage for white. Meier responded less convincingly and after a mistake he made on move 24 his position became hopeless.
