World Chess Championship 2016 (6)

Carlsen holds a comfortable draw with black in World Championship game 6

Magnus Carlsen played the Marshall Gambit of the Ruy Lopez in game 6 of the World Chess Championship. Black gives up a pawn for active play. This leads to sharper play and often complete equality. That was the case today. Carlsen was prepared very deeply and the resulting position left little to play for.

This was the first of two games in a row where Carlsen was due black and this forcing variation may have been part of a strategy to cope with that. Plus Carlsen didn't play that well the day before. Now the players have a day off before Sunday's game 7.

Score Carlsen 3 - Karjakin 3 all drawn.

Rest day Saturday 19th November.

Game 7 Sunday 20th November Karjakin vs Carlsen.
