CARLSEN’S FACILE VICTORY.

Carlsen Magnus vs. Ding Liren, Carlsen Tour Final 2020

Hello Dear Readers,

To win at chess, it is not mandatory to play the best chess. The only requirement to win a game of chess is to play better than opponent. Magnus Carlsen has been doing that since a long time. The world champion plays fairly simple moves and converts the roughly equal positions in winning positions. This game is one fine example where Carlsen makes simple positional plans and triumphs over his Chinese counterpart.


1

Find the best move for white!


2

Find the winning continuation.


I hope you enjoyed the game! It is always a good technique to proceed gradually and exploit opponent’s mistakes! Stay tuned for the next article.
