Candidates Round 3: A Peaceful Round and Two Sibling Victories

Vaishali and Praggnanandhaa were the sole winners in what was an otherwise pretty tame round

The calm after the storm. Yesterday’s round was absolutely wild, so it’s only natural that the collective energy of the players is now returning to baseline. Sibling pair extraordinaire Praggnanandhaa and Vaishali, however, did not seem to be interested in calm play as they bounced back from their round 2 losses by defeating Vidit and Salimova, respectively.
