How to beat GM Magnus Carlsen 3

2021 Meltwater CCTF Chess24

04/10/2021 –    Congratulations!! GM Magnus Carlsen  won the 2021 Meltwater CCTF Chess24. He has been winning tournaments successively yet sometimes GM Wesley So wins too. The rivalry is obvious to both World Champ. If  Super GMs are more competitive, the more chess players learn from it just like our featured two games played by GM Levon Aronian (2782) beating GM Magnus Carlsen in masterly fashion.

GM Carlsen used the Nimzowitsch Defense to surprise GM Aronian, transposed to French/Advanced variation makes it more thrilling. While the 2nd game adds spice to our excitement and curiosity when GM Aronian gave GM Carlsen hard time defending an inferior position. Lets look at it and learn…coffee will help…cheers…

The Nimzowitsch Defense

1st Game : Check diagram below (GAME VIEWER 1)

At move 2, if you are unprepared you may feel annoyed but believe me this opening is seriously tricky. Many transpositions around it, so be better prepare to deal with it.

The Nimzo-Indian Defense

2nd Game: Check diagram below (GAME VIEWER 2)

Being 1. d4 player myself, hate the Nimzo_indian due to its sound strategical make-up. I have history with it and found an antidote. I recommend you watch the YouTube video. Thanks...kindly share and subscribe.
