PGN Adams Carlsen

Copy the text below in your pgn reader

{Magnus Carlsen is considered to be among most rapidly progressing young players. After his brilliant performance at the World Cup, he is one of the leaders in Corus. Adams is well known for his solid White pieces. It is intriguing which shall prevail – experience or youth.}

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.O-O Nxe4 6.d4 b5 7.Bb3 d5 8.dxe5 Be6 9.Nbd2 Be7 10.c3 O-O 11.Bc2 f5 12.Nd4
{Carlsen opts for the Open Variation of Ruy Lopez that is not his usual opening choice.}
12…Nxd4 13.cxd4 c5 14.dxc5 Bxc5 15.Nb3 Bb6
{Now Adams may choose between 16.Be3 taking control over the dark squares or 16.Nd4 blocking the
‘d’ pawn.}
16.Nd4 Bxd4 17.Qxd4 Rc8
{Black doesn’t want to get under long term press and looks for active piece play to compensate the weakened pawn structure.}
18.Bb3 Nc5 19.Bd2 Nxb3 20.axb3 Rc6
{Carlsen counts on the draw tendencies of the opposite colored Bishops.}
21.Bb4 Re8 22.Bc5 f4 23.f3 Qg5 24.Rf2 Bf7 25.Bd6 Rec8 26.Re1 Be6 27.Bb4 Rc1 28.Rxc1 Rxc1+ 29.Rf1 Rxf1+ 30.Kxf1 Qf5 31.h4 Qb1+ 32.Be1 h5 33.b4 Qc1 34.Kf2 Qc4 { The draw seems inevitable. } 35.Bc3 Qxd4+ 36.Bxd4 Kf7 37. Ke2 Bf5 38.Kf2 {After the opening Adams achieved some advantage but the young GM from Norway accurately defended his position and is still leading the table.}
