World Champion Viswanathan Anand provided the world with a special treat in Round 4 of Tata Steel's Super Chess Tournament, being held in Wijk aan Zee, when he smashed the world #3 Levon Aronian with the black pieces! The game itself was beautiful, creative, and most importantly for this video lecture, proof that liberating black's pieces with the c5-break in the Caro-Slav Structure can lead to wonderful things. Enjoy Danny's replay of this brilliant performance!
