Tata Steel R5: Grandelius beats MVL’s Najdorf, retakes the lead

Carlsen says 2020 was “not a good year” and he’s not pleased with his own play: “I had some good moments, but I made too many mistakes and had too many bad games. Not the level I should be on.”

Carlsen szerint 2020 nem volt jó év, és nem elégedett saját játékával: “Voltak jó pillanataim, de túl sok hibát vétettem és túl sok rossz meccset. Nem az a szint, amin kéne lennem.”
