Zurich Chess Challenge 2014 Round 4: Carlsen beats Caruana, Gelfand loses to Anand, Aronian beats Nakamura
World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen was on sure footing as he beat Fabiano Caruana in the fourth round at the Zurich Chess Challenge 2014 on Sunday. It was a convincing win unlike the jittery-lucky previous-round victory over Hikaru Nakamura. With an unexpected exchange sacrifice on move 22, the World Chess Champion found a neat method to win even as Caruana was unable to find the best answers.
