Grenke Classic R8: Caruana beats Naiditsch, increases lead to a point

MORE LATER Fabiano Caruana is leading by a full point at the Grenke Chess Classic after eight rounds of play in Baden-Baden. The Italian (“half-American, a quarter Italian and a quarter Houdini” – commentator Lawrence Trent) survived a lethal attack on his king and even beat Arkadij Naiditsch, who continues to be part of the only decisive game of the round. You can do the math: Anand-Meier and Fridman-Adams were drawn.
