The fourth round of the Master’s Section was played in the famous Rijksmusem in Amsterdam.

Rijksmuseum Amsterdam in Amsterdam

The museum went through a renovation period of 10 years and was opened for public on the 13th of April last year.  Here is a fun video which shows a real-life enactment of the museum’s most famous work, Rembrandt’s ‘Night Watch’.

True to the spirit of the venue, Dominguez played a brilliant artistic endgame to overcome Caruana’s stiff resistance. Nakamura crumbled rather quickly in a passive endgame against Aronian while Karjakin crushed an out-of-sorts Rapport.

The fourth round in the Challenger’s section was played a day earlier which was a rest day for the players in the Master’s section. It seemed like the players had forgotten the result called ‘draw’ as they went for each other’s throats to produce a decisive round with four white wins and three black wins.
