Wei Yi vs Sergey Karjakin | 2017 Tata Steel Chess Tournament

It’s the young Chinese super talent Wei Yi against the “Master of Defense” Sergey Karjakin in Round 11 of the 2017 Tata Steel Chess Tournament, Masters section. What would the result be when play enters the Ruy Lopez, Berlin w/ 4.d3? Karjakin certainly has a vast knowledge of this opening from his recent match with Magnus Carlsen. Wei Yi presents Karjakin with a sharp line, and the big question…, “Who has done their homework?”
