Grenke Classic 2015 Round 2

Opening: D41, A29: QGD: Semi-Tarrasch, English: four knights kingside fianchetto

Player(s): Anand, Naiditsch, Carlsen, Adams

GM Larry Christiansen recaps Round 2. Chess at its best is when apparently simple moves allow their maker to keep his opponent under pressure, to establish long-term advantage and, ultimately, to win the game. This is what World Champion Magnus Carlsen is good at. Today's game against Adams, who is a very good positional player, showed yet again how incredibly strong is the fashion-model from Norway. Studying his games leaves the chess aficionado in awe, with only one idea in mind: I want to play like this guy! Carlsen's was the only decisive game today in Baden-Baden, therefore now Magnus leads solo with 1.5/2, followed by Caruana, Bacrot, Anand, Baramidze, Aronian and Baramidze with 50%. Adams closes the standings with 0.5/2.
