World champion Magnus Carlsen advanced to the semifinal of the chess dot com Grandmaster Blitz Battle by beating Tigran Petrosian 20-wins-to-3 with two draws.

My interest in this tournament is in the one game per round played under the chess960 rules. Against the Armenian grandmaster, the world champion managed the white side of position #768 wonderfully — Carlsen played logical and direct moves without error, landing in an endgame where his rook and bishop could be forked, and he could leave both to be captured!
