To bring his short series on high level chess preparation to a close (for now), GM Finegold reviews a game from the highest of levels! He displays the critical moments of the game Aronian-Anand from Wijk aan Zee, 2013. Ben highlights the world champ's amazing preparation, how Anand applied what he knew about the line into his game against Armenia's #1, and why it's important to prepare and memorize "ideas" as opposed to "variations" when you start analyzing very complex positions.
