Especially for Dutch chess fans this year's Tata Steel Chess Tournament is very exciting, since two Dutchmen are doing really well.

Magnus Carlsen finally won a game again and is the sixth player that is still in contention for first place. We are going to study Jorden's attractive win against Anton Guijarro.
