Rank #2: Caruana vs Carlsen | A battle before the 2018 World Chess Championship
Featured in this video is the Round 1 game of the 2018 Grenke Chess Classic between Fabiano Caruana (white), and Magnus Carlsen (black). This is Caruana and Carlsen's first tournament encounter since learning they will both be competing in the 2018 World Chess Championship Match come November of 2018. Fabiano Caruana will play challenger to the defending World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen. In this game Caruana opens with a non-confrontational setup that doesn't acheive any advantage as white, but rather some playable/normal position. Carlsen opts for a King's Indian Defense setup, with play beginning to sharp as early as move 12. We witness multiple structural imbalances, each side obtaining a majority, and an all important minor piece imbalance as well. Once the endgame arrives, and only one rook remains for each player, the quality of the pawns would be king.
