In this video Grand Master Damian Lemos analyzes round 5 of the World Chess Championship between Carlsen (White) and Anand ( Black). Magnus opens the game with the English opening ( his previous White games he played the Reti opening, not getting much ). After a couple of moves we get a triangle variation of the Semi-Slav defense. The resulting position is quite unexplored and we get a pre endgame soon where Black seems to have the edge due to his bishop pair. However, Magnus proves Black’s bishop pair is not strong enough. It is just impressive how Magnus got an advantage out of the equal-looking endgame.
