The #1 ranked chess player in the world, Magnus Carlsen, battles the reigning World Chess Champion, Viswanathan Anand, in Round 9 of the 2012 Chess Masters Final in Bilbao. The opening is a Sicilian Defense, Canal-Sokolsky Attack where Carlsen sacrifices a pawn to induce kingside weaknesses. Anand's defense proves to be a very difficult task. Might Magnus Carlsen be the challenger for the 2014 World Chess Championship title, and might this game be a preview of an ensuing battle?
