carlsen end game prowess
Compiled by frogbert
--*--

in slightly better or slightly unbalanced end games, carlsen seems to have a way with his pieces that makes even his super gm opponents lose their foothold. in one game after the other, we see how he manages to combine tactical motifs with positional play to gradually squeeze the life out his opponents. i'm very impressed!
