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

Game of the Week #405

The Candidates remains very exciting, as a few hours ago the second place Vachier-Lagrave beat Nepomniachtchi in their direct encounter to move into a tie at the top. Interestingly, they played a variation of the French Winawer that I have been analysing extensively with a few friends on Ibiza in 2019, so I will be able to show some hidden points.

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?
