Finales de Torre Parte 5





Un difícil juego con grandes chances para ambos bandos. Después de más de seis horas y cortos de tiempo en esta final, no es de sorprender la final de Torres en este juego contara con errores de parte y parte, especialmente con posiciones bien difíciles que solo el estudio permite crear.

La Partida Del Día: Naiditsch - Carlsen BADEN BADEN 2015 Round 3


Lo más destacado sin duda fue la derrota de Magnus Carlsen ante Arkadij Naiditsch que llegó junto con unas cuantas sorpresas. La primera fue el hecho que el Campeón del Mundo sacrificase una pieza sin contar con compensación para ello. O sea, que medio año después de la olimpiada en Tromso, Arkadij Naiditsch vuelve a vencer al número uno del mundo. Baden - Baden
