75th Tata Steel Chess: Peter Leko beat Fabiano Caruana in a Spanish that goes straight to the classroom with a display of the square c4’s importance in the line. You could learn a thing or two from the game about how to handle a locked queenside and set up an attack down the Kingside. You can replay the game with Chess King. A report on Round 5 is available at Chess Blog.
