Another Epic Struggle from London 2015
Opening: D11: QGD Slav: 4.e3
Player(s): Carlsen, Nakamura
Can Hikaru finally turn his luck in face-to-face games around? The answer is not this time. After his customary unassuming play in the opening Magnus keeps control throughout a fascinating endgame with two bishop vs. two knights. The only question is, can White break through. As his time is ticking away Magnus finds an amazing piece sacrifice. The plot has one more twist as Hikaru blows an unexpected chance to save the game toward the end of this epic struggle.
