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 5 was another Ruy Lopez, another anti-Marshall, and another draw. Yet, it certainly wasn’t a walk in the park for either player. It may be that Nepomniachtchi once again had Carlsen on the defensive, but Magnus rose to the occasion and managed to get out of the minefield.
Now, without further ado, let’s take a close look at game 5 of the Carlsen-Nepomniachtchi Match!
