Grenke Classic 2015 Round 7

Opening: A48: King's Indian: Torre attack

Player(s): Carlsen, Bacrot

GM Max Dlugy recaps Round 7. It's him again! Magnus Carlsen won the Grenke Classic 2015. Congratulations to the World Champion! In the last round Carlsen and Naiditsch drew their game, and went on to play tiebreak games. But it wasn't exactly a walk in the park for the super-Norwegian, who had to face a very pugnacious Arkadij Naiditsch in the playoffs. It was a rollecoaster: Magnus won the first of the two Rapid games (10+2) and most everyone at that point was quite sure it was going to be a matter of routine for the Number One. But Naiditsch, in a crazy second Rapid game, won, to keep Magnus at the board for two more Blitz games (5+2). The two foes drew both Blitz games, to go on to Armageddon. Carlsen played White, and he had to win to clinch the final victory. Which the World Champion did, in good style. The Grenke classic 2015 was a very interesting tournament, with ups and downs, which helped the show.
