Carlsen wins with such minute precision that sometimes it may seem magical. Here, a pair of his games is examined, and in both he eschews complications in favor of small endgame advantages. FM Kavutskiy shows that he can beat a top-10 player with bishops of same color, and he can beat another top-10 player with bishops of opposite color. Give this man an inkling of an advantage, and he'll inch his historic rating even higher!
