Fabiano Caruana vs Magnus Carlsen - 2nd Sinquefield Cup 2014

intermediate
ChessNetwork Master games Carlsen, magnus Caruana, fabiano Sicilian defence Accelerated dragon Dragon variation Maroczy bind 2014 Sinquefield cup

This is the 8th round game between the #2 ranked chess player in the world, Fabiano Caruana, and the #1 ranked chess player in the world and current world chess champion, Magnus Carlsen, from the 2nd Sinquefield Cup chess tournament of 2014. Fabiano Caruana went into this 8th round with a perfect 7/7 score and looked to leave an even greater footprint on the chess world with an eighth consecutive win. The game sees Carlsen choosing the Sicilian Accelerated Dragon, and Caruana entering the Maróczy Bind variation with 5. c4. The early moments draw much of our attention to the queenside, where Carlsen runs his a-pawn deep to induce some queenside weaknesses in Caruana's camp. However after Caruana's 17th move, a great focus would then shift to the kingside, where Caruana and Carlsen's kings reside. The tournament was held in the United States - Saint Louis, Missouri at the Saint Louis Chess Club & Scholastic Center (Home of the World Chess Hall of Fame). This tournament's 6 competitors (Magnus Carlsen, Levon Aronian, Fabiano Caruana, Hikaru Nakamura, Veselin Topalov and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave) have an average rating of nearly 2802, making it the strongest tournament in chess history.
