Magnus Carlsen is the new world chess champion! In this video, GM Damian Lemos analyzes Round 10 of the world chess championship between Magnus Carlsen and Vishy Anand. Magnus needed just a draw to get the world champioshipn title. He opens the game with 1.e4 and Anand tries the Sicilian. We’ll see a Rossolimo variation where White enjoys a plus due to his space advantage and after a couple of trades a draw-looking endgame arises. However, Carlsen ends up getting 3 passed pawns! for a piece.. Definitely, one of the most exciting games of the match.
Who is the current world chess champion? It is now Magnus Carlsen! Congratulations to him!
