The first surprise | Nepomniachtichi – Carlsen | Game 1

The 2021 World Chess Championship got underway with the first game today.

Ian Nepomniachtchi, the challenger from Russia, opened the game with the king’s pawn, pawn to e4. Carlsen answered with his tried and trusted 1…e5 the double king’s pawn and quickly we got the Ruy Lopez, one of the oldest and most respectable openings of them all!

Carlsen was first to spring a surprise with the pawn sacrifice 8…Na5!?
