A Sarana vs Carlsen, 2019
|Oct-13-19|| ||cro777: "In Round two of the FIDE Chess.com Grand Swiss the young Russian talent Alexey Sarana tested the reigning world champion Magnus Carlsen. Pushing a pleasant position out of a prepared Sicilian line, Sarana secured a draw from a position of strength against the tournament's top-seed. His opening preparation provided a late opening novelty in the Sicilian that reduced the position to a rook and minor piece endgame." (Chess.com) |
