Fabiano Caruana vs Magnus Carlsen: 2017 Isle of Man Masters

Fabiano Caruana and Magnus Carlsen clashed at the 2017 Isle of Man Masters. In what may very well be a future world chess championship matchup, Fabiano Caruana and the current World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen met in Round 8 of this tournament. They battled it out yet again, in a Ruy Lopez. The game acts as a nice lesson regarding pawn play. Take notice of not only the central tension that is held for the vast majority of the game, but also for the many opportunities each player has to transform the structure.
