Carlsen leads Altibox Tournament
Tari gets valuable lesson from Carlsen
Every defeat can be an opportunity to learn something new. Yesterday, in round 8, World Champion Magnus Carlsen gave a valuable lesson to his compatriot, former World Junior Champion Aryan Tari.
The young Tari is probably just too young to have had time to study the great classics of chess (Steinitz era to Fischer era) and so he simply did not know that he was heading into what has long been known to be a strategically lost game when he allowed Carlsen to exchange minor pieces. The resulting position saw Carlsen’s Knight easily dominate Tari’s Bishop.
