FIDE Candidates Tournament 2022 (round 5): Remarkable draws

For a second time in this year’s edition of the Candidates Tournament, all four games in a single round finished drawn at the Palacio of Santoña in Madrid. It was not for a lack of trying though, as Hikaru Nakamura and Ding Liren had good winning chances they could not convert into full points against Ian Nepomniachtchi and Teimour Radjabov respectively.
