Was it a close call, or was it just another day at the office for Magnus? GM Yermolinsky examines how he handles a worse middlegame against GM Anish Giri. You'll learn a little bit of everything - Grunfeld ideas, King's Indian basics, pawn structure exceptions, and most importantly, how to act with conviction rather than defend passively. The World Champ sees White underdeveloped and knows just when to offer a pawn and seize play. Could any other GM avoid the loss? Yermolinsky doesn't think so.
