The group of players in the 2-5 positions in the world rankings keeps shuffling, flipping and turning over. What's been consistent is the man at the top - GM Magnus Carlsen. Today FM Kavutskiy shows how he handles Queen's Gambit positions against the current number three and number four. It seems no matter who Carlsen faces, he does his same slow buildup, and maximizes his piece activity before breaking through. It's not Tal, but no one can doubt it's effective.
