Tata Steel 2013 / Round 12
Magnus Carlsen is on a roll. He defeated (rather convincingly) Hikaru Nakamura today on the White side of a Sicilian – See Diagram.
This means that Carlsen has effectively won the tournament with a round to spare; no one can catch him.
There just doesn’t appear to be any type of game that he doesn’t play well, and more importantly, seem completely comfortable doing so.
The World Champion Anand,won his game against L’Ami, Hou won her game against Sokolov and Van Wely won his game against Caruana who has now lost his second game in a row.
