Game of the Week 359

At this year's GAMMA Reykjavik Open, first place was shared by eight grandmasters, all rated above 2600, and each reaching an impressive 7 out of 9 score. The tournament winner by tiebreak was Romania's number 1 Constantin Lupulescu. Lawrence Trent looked at his sparking win over Alirez Firouzja in The Weekly Show, a strong candidate for Game of the Week, so Merijn has instead chosen Carlsen vs Grischuk from the last round of Shamkir. (Replay the full game below.)

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

Warm-up question: How would you take back on c5 here with Black?
