What a game!! Classic Carlsen: a weird opening that doesn't do anything, moving around in circles in a visually equal endgame, and then eventually a fascinating and intricate endgame is played that reveals a bunch of cool ideas I didn't know.

And here's a pgn viewer for the game and variations discussed in the video. There are no evaluations in these notes, they are all in the video.

I'll be analyzing this further on my own for fun!

Tomorrow Anand has white in game 6. If you have any feedback on the format, content, style or pace of these videos,please let me know. :-)
