Nepomniachtchi wins Aeroflot blitz after 'failing clock incident'

Ian Nepomniachtchi won the super strong blitz tournament held on Thursday in Moscow as part of the Aeroflot Chess Festival. The Russian grandmaster was leading by a full point with two rounds to go, but these were the double rounds against runner-up Peter Svidler. The first was won by Svidler, who lost the second game, in the final round, on time. But not before the DGT clock behaved somewhat peculiarly.
