Magnus Carlsen

As a kind of follow-up on the previous post Aronian and Carlsen became the co-winners of the Corus tournament. On the Magnus Carlsen Chess site the game of the previous post is described in the following way.

As white, Anand sacked a pawn against Kramnik and the latter avoided repetition of moves only to be allow Anand a ferocious attack against the black king. However, Kramnik defended brilliantly and after Anand missed Rd1 and gave up his bishop instead, his advantage disappeared. With queens off the board, a draw was agreed in the rook + 4 pawns versus rook + bishop + 1 pawn ending, and the winners press conference could begin.
