The winning string continues for Magnus Carlsen

The Norwegian chess maestro gained another three points today. This time the namesake of the beloved character of Astrid Lindgren's book beat Spanish colleague Vallejo. He did it in his favourite free and easy style: gathered small advantages, weakened the opponent's position and converted all that into three points. 

CARLSEN - VALLEJO

White start to "grate on Black's nerves", although it doesn't have anything tangible yet.

 — In the left one! 
 — Nope! The buzzzz's in both ears!"


"Again you with your tricks, little imp!.."
