Baku Grand Prix Round 2: Carlsen-Svidler 1/2

The match between top seed Magnus Carlsen of Norway and Peter Svidler of Russia ended in a truce after 43 moves of the Ruy Lopez/Open Variation. It was a sorry draw for Svidler who had his chances against the top seed in the end game but wasn't able to capitalize them. Despite the draw and being a pawn down, the Norwegian wunderkid show his deep understanding of the end game when everything seems against his favor.
