Game of the Week #412

Kramnik impressively won the Play for Russia preliminary, while Grischuk was superior at the final stage. Carlsen was victorious in the Steinitz Memorial. Both events were blitz though, so for our Game of the Week we focused on the first round of the Lindores Abbey Rapid Challenge. Carlsen scored two amazing attacking wins on day one, but our focus will be on his great fight against Nakamura.

The live show is free to watch, and available on-demand for ChessBase Premium accounts.
