A Horse Named Stranger Posted September 9, 2017 Share Posted September 9, 2017 Wow. Looks like Carlsen got a bit more of a challenge than he asked for. Very nice win for Bu. What I found interesting was Carlsen playing 2.Bc4. I know it's not that unfashionable atm. But it appears Carlsen and his team haven't found anything that promising against the Petroff. Though, I can't help to wonder why didn't he simply sidestep it and picked 1.Nf3 or 1.d4 or 1.c4 Also Aronian scored a nice win against Matlakov. Though I would've been more interested if he had played more main line stuff with 4.g3 and the game could've gone for the reversed Dragon or a more traditional English four knights. Oh, yeah. Paco played a total train wreck of a game against So. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
