Game of the Week #389

The latest trends in opening theory are often dictated by the strongest players. This week, both Magnus Carlsen and Vassily Ivanchuk showed their own unique handling of the 6.♗g5 Najdorf. One would think that in this sharp, concrete opening, everything has already been analysed, but there is still enough room for creativity. Tonight, we will mainly focus on the Ivanchuk game.

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