World Championship Match: First Blood Lesson

Hello chess friends! It’s been nearly two weeks since my latest post and today, I wanted to share with you a valuable lesson on the 5th game of the World Championship match between World number 1 rated player GM Magnus Carlsen and the reigning World Champion Viswanathan Anand. It was a challenging and quite dramatic game worth analyzing in a lecture. Enjoy!

If you want to follow the analysis attentively you should maximize the broadcast window: Click on the YouTube icon or "Full screen" on the bottom right.

    What kind of weaponry is Anand going to come up with now? He's flown on auto-pilot - but no more!
