Magnus Carlsen vs Sergey Karjakin | 2016 World Chess Championship | Game 1

World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen defends his title against challenger Sergey Karjakin in Game 1 of the 2016 World Chess Championship match that is being held in New York, USA. It’s a best of 12 games where the first player to earn 6.5 points earns the lion’s share of a $1.1 million prize pool, and the title of “World Chess Champion”. Would Game 1 between the 25-year-old Magnus Carlsen from Norway, and the 26-year-old Sergey Karjakin from Russia be decisive? Did Carlsen really play the Trompowsky opening?!

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
