Greetings chess players. My name is Chris Torres, and this is Daily Chess Musings’ Special Coverage of the 2021 FIDE World Championship Match between Magnus Carlsen and Ian Nepomniachtchi.
Game 2 of the Carlsen-Nepomniachtchi match was a tense struggle which ended in a draw. Magnus Carlsen had white and chose an early rare move in the Catalan. However, his plan nearly backfired after the World Champion made a costly mistake. However, just when it looked like Ian Nepomniachtchi might win game 2, he also played inaccurately! Meaning the second game of the FIDE World Championship had plenty of drama and surprises.
Now, without further ado, let’s take a close look at game 2 of the Carlsen-Nepomniachtchi Match!
I hope you enjoyed today’s special presentation of round 2 from the 2021 FIDE World Championship Match between Magnus Carlsen and Ian Nepomniachtchi.
