Tata Steel:Magnus beats Van Wely


World Champion Magnus Carlsen finally won a game in the Tata Steel-
tournament in Wijk aan Zee in Holland. He played the grnfeld-defence
as black against the Dutchman GM Loek Van Wely. Magnus got a big
advantage on the clock in the Bf4-variation, but had so survive some
scary moments before he won. Loek could have gotten a winning position
fter 28.Qh6+ but in his usual time trouble the Dutchman missed this
faily obvious continuation and was severely punished after 37.Ne2?? which
allowed a beautiful finish from Magnus.
After this victory Magnus had 3 out of 5 and is trailing half a point after
the leaders Caruana and Ding. Read more about the 5th round in ChessBase.
