Game of the Week XXIX-Carlsen,Magnus (2847)- Wojtaszek,Radoslaw (2687)

By Guest Contributor Grandmaster Peter Prohaszka: This week’s choice fell upon a beautiful technical win by Magnus Carlsen to Radoslaw Wojtaszek in their second rapid game at the World Cup.

It is rare that we see a bishop dominating a knight so pristinely in modern chess. It was spectacular to watch it live, and I hope you will find the same joy I had in watching such great chess!
