La Partida Del Día: Carlsen, Magnus (2853) - Grischuk, Alexander (2771) 0-1 3rd Sinquefield Cup 2015


GM Magnus Carlsen: "La forma en que perdí esta partida fue realmente vergonzosa. Es el tipo de pérdidas que he tenido últimamente. Es increíblemente frustrante. Siento que jugué mal en el medio juego - Ya no hago un empate cuando tengo que hacer unas tablas - y en la finales juego muy mal. Por supuesto que Alex se merece el crédito por empujar, pero es frustrante. Perder tantas partidas con las piezas blancas es ridículo!"

***Es la primera victoria de Alexander Grischuk en clásicas ante Magnus Carlsen. Y con las piezas Negras.
