A Dream Result for Carlsen

Yesterday Magnus Carlsen put the cap on the midway point of a dream year in which he’s won six tournaments already. He finished with eight points from eleven games in the GCT event in Zagreb, Croatia.

This hearkens back to an event ten years ago, the 2nd Nanjing Spring Pearl tournament where Magnus scored the best ever performance rating of 3002 with eight points from ten rounds.

Over the next ten days we will look at those ten games, including his round one win annotated by Magnus himself in Chessbase Magazine 133.

Round One

Carlsen – Leko 1-0

Tomorrow we’ll look at round two!
