Magnus Carlsen vs Hou Yifan - 2016 Tata Steel Chess Tournament
World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen is paired with the world's strongest female chessplayer, Hou Yifan in Round 11 of the 2016 Tata Steel Chess Tournament. Both players met for the first time in last year's Tata Steel Tournment where there was a decisive result. In this 2016 game, Carlsen chooses e4 with Hou Yifan electing the Petrov's Defense in reply. The opening and middlegame was overall uneventable due to mass piece exchanges. It was however the king and pawn endgame which proved critical. Would it be Magnus Carlsen or Hou Yifan who blinked first?
