Fide Chess Candidates 2013 R14: Magnus Carlsen – Peter Svidler 0-1

World No. 1 Magnus Carlen had not lost a game since September, 2012. What were the chances that he would lose two games with White within a span of three rounds? That “statistically almost-impossible” event happened in the last round (14th) of the Fide Chess Candidates 2013 in London on Monday. Magnus Carlsen got into time trouble, botched a seemingly balanced position and Peter Svidler kept his cool to take home a fine victory. Earlier, Carlsen had lost his game with White to Vassily Ivanchuk in the 12th round. Read a full report in Chess Blog and replay the game with Chess King.
