Master Class Vol.8: Magnus Carlsen Master Class Vol.8: Magnus Carlsen

Game of the Week #393

Happy new year everyone! Tonight we'll start the new year by looking back at the World Rapid and Blitz Championship. Magnus Carlsen managed to win both tournaments and now holds all titles. The world's undisputed number one played smoothly, only losing one game (with black in blitz against Andreikin) along the way. We will look at Aronian-Carlsen from the rapid, and surely there is more, in case we have time left.

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

Warming-up question: What would you play here with Black?
