Sergey Karjakin vs Magnus Carlsen | 2016 World Chess Championship | Game 4

World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen defends his title against challenger Sergey Karjakin in Game 4 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 4 finally see a decisive result? We revisit the Ruy Lopez, and follow game 2 for the first 5 moves. In the endgame, one side creates a possible fortress kicking off with move 43. Would there be a way to break it down? Has the speaker in this video spoken too confidently about move 43’s strength? πŸ™‚ See for yourself and test out the interesting position that arises in this 94-move encouter to see if you can find a good path.

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.
