Norway Chess started in Stavanger and there were a few surprises. Anand prepared the Caro-Kann, Caruana the QGA, but what amazed me is Giri losing 6 games in a row! 

He even played a line that happened in game 5 of the Taimanov-Fischer match. Playing Black (as Fischer) didn't help him avoid the 6th loss. I wonder whether he is feeling Taimanov-ish now.

The full report is here.
