The #1 ranked American Grandmaster, Hikaru Nakamura, plays an atypical opening (Vienna Game) in Round 3 versus the World's #1 ranked Grandmaster, Magnus Carlsen. This game highlights the significant difference of knight vs bishop. The super tournament is the first of its kind for Norway Chess 2013.
Really impressed with your positional understanding and the efficient way in which you discuss the control of the vital squares.
Indeed, I found the lecture on the importance of controlling the vital White Q-4(d4) square [beginning ~9:19] an especially effective training tool for intermediate students.
Excellent game choice; I have found that while draws at the elite level are often vapid due to the practical nature of playing to eat [the phenomenon of "Preconcieved GM Draws"], bloody 'fighting' draws, like this choice, filled with educational initiative - such as the wisely added Kingside tactic Nakamura pointed out in postgame (including Qg4/Nh5/Nxg7/etc.) - are some of the most essential additions to any effective Chess education.
Professional stuff, Jerry. Thanks for posting and I look forward to more!
Jolly nice to watch this video with Magnus and Hikaru, and it become a draw, right ?
"And these two clowns are doing absolutely nothing". Laughed out loud.
