Wijk aan Zee: Magnus collects tournament and rating points

Wijk aan Zee got the sole leader, but it's hard to surprise anyone by naming him: Magnus Carlsen topped Group A after defeating Ivan Sokolov of Netherlands.

"I thought the position was equal, then he made a few mistakes. He shouldn't have changed both rooks and allowed me to get more or less everything I wanted. After that it turned out the position wasn't so easy to win; maybe I could have done something better, " Magnus said in the official video commentary to the game.

"In the end when he has played 46...Bd8 - which just losses immediately he could have tried 46...Qd4," Carlsen added. Listen to his commentary at full:
