World Chess Cup – round two return games

Arkadij Naiditsch – Magnus Carlsen live on Chessdom!

First game in the mini-match Carlsen-Naiditsch ended in a draw after Carlsen’s multiple attempts to convert the advantage and Naiditsch’s persistent defence. Naiditsch will be white in the return game, but we should keep in mind that Carlsen already beat him twice with black. Is this going to be another Exchange Ruy Lopez? We’re about to find out soon.
