Biel Chess Fest: Carlsen Steamrolls Wang Hao

The 2012 Biel Chess Festival is taking place from July 23-August 2 in several groups. The most important being the Master Tournament. It includes six very strong grandmasters playing a double round robin: Magnus Carlsen, Hikaru Nakamura, Alexander Morozevich, Wang Hao, Etienne Bacrot and Anish Giri. However, Morozevich dropped out later due to ill health and was replaced by GM Viktor Bologan. Here is the Round 2-win by Carlsen over Chinese No. 1.
