World Chess Championship 2016 - Game 4: Sergey Karjakin vs Magnus Carlsen : Spanish Game

Sergey Karjakin vs Magnus Carlsen : World Championship (2016) Game 4: A classic Ruy lopez (spanish game). White geared up for Kingside pressure with h3 and Nh2 to be able to play Qf3 with pressure on f6. Magnus blunted the effect of the a2 bishop by playing Nc4 seemingly oblivious to White's tactical Bxh6 idea. But Magnus simply made an elegant move which would forcefully regain the pawn - 18...Qc6 which Sergey had overlooked, instead perhaps calculating fantasy variaitons involving a potential queen sac. To the suprise of many spectators White also played Bxc4 giving up his important light squared bishop. Black had the powerful bishop pair and it seeed an ideal torture position for Magnus to create lasting pressure from. The bishop and Knight vs two bishop endgame however provided White with sufficient resources to maintain a fortress even though Magnus took his king all the way down the board to a2 and then back up to g6. White was able to create an impenetrable fortress in the resulting knight vs bishop endgame. Sergey demonstrated how resourceful he could be in difficult to play positions. 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: [Event "Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship"] [Site "0:34:33-0:04:33"] [Date "2016.11.15"] [EventDate "2016.11.11"] [Round "4"] [Result "1/2-1/2"] [White "Sergey Karjakin"] [Black "Magnus Carlsen"] [ECO "C84"] [WhiteElo "?"] [BlackElo "?"] [PlyCount "187"] 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.O-O Be7 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 O-O 8.h3 Bb7 9.d3 d6 10.a3 Qd7 11.Nbd2 Rfe8 12.c3 Bf8 13.Nf1 h6 14.N3h2 d5 15.Qf3 Na5 16.Ba2 dxe4 17.dxe4 Nc4 18.Bxh6 Qc6 19.Bxc4 bxc4 20.Be3 Nxe4 21.Ng3 Nd6 22.Rad1 Rab8 23.Bc1 f6 24.Qxc6 Bxc6 25.Ng4 Rb5 26.f3 f5 27.Nf2 Be7 28.f4 Bh4 29.fxe5 Bxg3 30.exd6 Rxe1+ 31.Rxe1 cxd6 32.Rd1 Kf7 33.Rd4 Re5 34.Kf1 Rd5 35.Rxd5 Bxd5 36.Bg5 Kg6 37.h4 Kh5 38.Nh3 Bf7 39.Be7 Bxh4 40.Bxd6 Bd8 41.Ke2 g5 42.Nf2 Kg6 43.g4 Bb6 44.Be5 a5 45.Nd1 f4 46.Bd4 Bc7 47.Nf2 Be6 48.Kf3 Bd5+ 49.Ke2 Bg2 50.Kd2 Kf7 51.Kc2 Bd5 52.Kd2 Bd8 53.Kc2 Ke6 54.Kd2 Kd7 55.Kc2 Kc6 56.Kd2 Kb5 57.Kc1 Ka4 58.Kc2 Bf7 59.Kc1 Bg6 60.Kd2 Kb3 61.Kc1 Bd3 62.Nh3 Ka2 63.Bc5 Be2 64.Nf2 Bf3 65.Kc2 Bc6 66.Bd4 Bd7 67.Bc5 Bc7 68.Bd4 Be6 69.Bc5 f3 70.Be3 Bd7 71.Kc1 Bc8 72.Kc2 Bd7 73.Kc1 Bf4 74.Bxf4 gxf4 75.Kc2 Be6 76.Kc1 Bc8 77.Kc2 Be6 78.Kc1 Kb3 79.Kb1 Ka4 80.Kc2 Kb5 81.Kd2 Kc6 82.Ke1 Kd5 83.Kf1 Ke5 84.Kg1 Kf6 85.Ne4+ Kg6 86.Kf2 Bxg4 87.Nd2 Be6 88.Kxf3 Kf5 89.a4 Bd5+ 90.Kf2 Kg4 91.Nf1 Kg5 92.Nd2 Kf5 93.Ke2 Kg4 94.Kf2 1/2-1/2 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
