The Chess Mind

The Chess Mind is one of my favorite Chess blogs, written by Dennis Monokroussos. It contains a selection of the chess news.

The victory of Giri in the Tata Steel tournament is described in his post of round 3 as:

There were some short games today in Wijk aan Zee, but not all of the draws were short and not all of the short games were drawn. Nepomniachtchi-Grischuk and Vachier-Lagrave vs. Aronian were drawn quickly, but the miniature Carlsen-Giri was a rout in Giri’s favor. Carlsen’s prep wasn’t good at all, resulting after 17 moves in an equal position where the burden was on White to maintain equality. He didn’t: his 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st moves were all inferior, and after Black’s 22nd move Carlsen resigned.

At the moment the most actual posts are about the (possible) French cheating.
