<Carlsen breaks the Chinese wall

By Leontxo Garcia


<<<Another sensation came out in the third game. Wang Yue didn’t know the game Ivanchuk-Anand, Leon’s final 2008, where the World Champion was already lost after the 16th move, and fell into the same trap. Carlsen did know that game: “The Leon tournament is important every year, and is good to follow it carefully, just in case you can get some good ideas”.>>>>

Ivanchuk vs Anand, 2008

  Peligroso Patzer: Wang managed to avoid the 14. ... Qe4 of Ivanchuk vs Anand, 2008, which loses a whole piece after 15. Rd4!, but his 14. ... Qe4 did not fare much better.

Black can't avoid simplification and/or the 7th rank will be invaded. Black's position will fall apart in a few moves so he just resigned.
