World Chess Championship (2016) : Game 3 : Magnus Carlsen vs Sergey Karjakin Carlsen : Spanish Game

Magnus Carlsen vs Sergey Karjakin World Championship (2016) Game 3. This game featured the super solid Berlin defence. Out of the opening there was only one shared file - the 'e' file. Magnus innovated with the strange looking Re2 move at move 10 instead of the more routine Re1. Queens game off via the e file, and then shortly after Sergey played the bold g5 forcing move. This created the first imbalance in the position when white played Bxd6 taking off black's d6 knight. The light squared bishops were then exchanged off. Magnus later played f4 which resulted in a new shared 'g' file. Then after Sergey played b5 which resulted in a third shared 'a' file. Then all of a sudden the game started to become extremely exciting as White's rook had options on the g-file whilst black's rook used the 'a' file. Magnus won a pawn and started to get a more aggressive king. On move 71, there seemed to be a study-like move which promised White good winning chances in the form of Re1. But Magnus instead played Na5. Black resourcefully used his passed h pawn trump card to force a draw. A magnificent save from Sergey who was under huge pressure during this game. â–ºFREE online turn-style chess at or realtime at (use my discount code KINGICC for 10% off) â–ºSupport the channel by donating via PayPal: â–ºKingscrusher's training books at Chessable: â–ºPlaylists: â–ºFollow me at Google+ : â–ºPlay and follow broadcasts at Chess24: Thumbnail : Carlsen vs Karjakin Magnus Carlsen: By GFHund (Own work) [CC BY-SA 4.0 (], via Wikimedia Commons Karjakin By Andreas Kontokanis from Piraeus, Greece (Karjakin Sergey) [CC BY-SA 2.0 (], via Wikimedia Commons
