Shamkir 2014: Round 4: Highlights Watch the critical moment of the World Champion's first loss in classical chess in nearly one year. The dragon slayer, GM Fabiano Caruana, was also the last to beat him. GMs Yermolinsky and Shabalov (making his debut!) try to understand why Magnus Carlsen could just allow a basic tactic. At first, Shabalov thinks the position must be wrong! Watch and see the Berlin Wall finally fall and the explanations offered for it.

Shamkir Round 10: Complete Show: Part 1 Some pundits think GM Fabiano Caruana is the man who will give GM Magnus Carlsen a serious challenge to the World Championship some day.

Shamkir 2014: Round 10: Highlights Our twin towers—GMs Williams and Bojkov—focus mostly on Carlsen-Caruana in the final round of the Gashimov Memorial. It's not often that the two leaders happen to clash at the end of a round robin, but the pairings worked out in just such a way this week. Caruana seems to be the only one with Carlsen mojo. Can he make it 2-0 in this tournament against the World Champ? Watch and see the "four exclam" and "caveman chess" that transpired!
