Tata Steel 2016 - Video Recap - Round 6

Opening: A46: Queen's pawn game

Player(s): Carlsen, Tomashevsky

GM Larry Christiansen recaps Round 6. Today The World Champion didn't need his psychological tricks to win the game against Tomashevsky: Magnus used brute chess force to win. A fantastic attacking game, in which Carlsen was able to build up an attack in a few moves, leaving "the professor" helpless. Tomashevsky apparently resigned a bit early, but his position must have disgusted him. Magnus, as we said after his 4 draws in the first 4 rounds, is the one who can pull a winning streak out of the hat. If he gets confident and in good form, there is nothing to do for anyone. He just plays in a different league. Hou Yifan drew her fellow Chinese wunderkind, to continue her amazingly good tournament. It is more or less crisis for the strong Azeri GM Mamedyarov, who today lost to Giri. Giri has not been playing at his best so far in Wjik aan Zee, but today he faced a passive Mamedyarov. After 6 rounds, there is a trio in the lead: Carlsen, Ding and Caruana, with 4 points. At 3.5 Hou, So and Eljanov. Giri, Wei and Karjakin follow at 3 points. There are 7 rounds to go, so any prevision would sound presumptuous, but after what Carlsen did in the last two games, it looks bleak for the rest of the players in the Tata Steel Masters tournament.

This is a 5 minute preview.
