Chess News of the Week: Carlson wins Kings Tournament

Carlsen wins Kings Tournament : Chess news by ChessVibes
Magnus Carlsen finished the Kings Tournament in Bazna, Romania in style. The Norwegian beat Wang Yue with Black in the last round to finish with a 7.5/10 score, two points ahead of the rest of the field. Ponomariov and Radjabov defeated Nisipeanu and Gelfand respectively, also with the black pieces.

Interesting to see Carlsen dominating in this tournament. I enjoyed reviewing his Dragon game in round 5.
