Improve Your Chess: Highly Instructive Games - Carlsen-Gelfand 2013

Opening: B31: Sicilian Rossolimo

Player(s): Carlsen, Gelfand

Gelfand equalizes in the opening but Carlsen, as usual, keeps applying subtle pressure. Eventually Carlsen builds up winning chances but Gelfand hangs in for a long time. Through a series of tactical tricks Carlsen gets into a better endgame with heavy pieces still on the board. Gelfand sacrifices a pawn for play but in some complications does not find the best defense. Carlsen eventually sacrifices a piece to get connected passed pawns but Gelfand captures that piece with the wrong piece and Carlsen's threats to promote quickly force victory.
