Issue Cover

British Chess Magazine  |  March 2016  


The March issue of the British Chess magazine turns the spotlight on two very strongly contested Open tournaments, in Qatar and Gibraltar.
True, Qatar had a minimum rating entry requirement but it also had the participation of none less than world champion Magnus Carlsen – the first reigning world champion to take part in an open since Boris Spassky played in Vancouver in 1971. And the king fully lived up to expectations...
Magnus’ game against 2700+ grandmaster Li Chao ranks with the most spectacular chess battles of all time. Opening with 3 f3 vs the Grunfeld, play rapidly became extremely sharp and essentially developed into a contest between White’s kingside attack and Black’s assault on the other flank. Though, objectively, White reached a winning position, one false move would have allowed Black to turn the tables dramatically and even deliver the most beautiful checkmate. But, as it happened, Carlsen kept his cool and navigated his way through the perilous complications, to score a victory which can take pride of place in any future best games collection!
Properly understanding this game requires precise analysis and explanatory commentary and these are provided in full measure by GM Surya Ganguly, 6-time Indian champion and second to Vishy Anand in three of his world title clashes.
So reach for your favourite chess set and replay this magnificent battle of wits at your leisure and in the comfort of your home. We guarantee it will give you a great deal of pleasure.
