Super Bishop | Magnus Carlsen vs Sergey Karjakin – 2018 Sinquefield Cup

This is a round 2 game from the 2018 Sinquefield Cup between the current World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen, and Sergey Karjakin. When Carlsen and Karjakin competed in the 2016 World Chess Championship match, many games were tightly contested. That match often consisted of Carlsen trying to methodically press a slight advantage, only to have Karjakin find a fantastic defense. The featured game, played at the Saint Louis Chess Club and Scholastic Center, took a simliar path as the games from the 2016 World Chess Championship. Endurance would be a big factor in this 88 move encounter which lasted nearly 7 hours.
