Annotated Chess Game in French Defence: Fabiano Caruana and Magnus Carlsen

French defence is famous for its solidity and counter attack possibilities in later stage of the game with a view to somewhat cramp position in the opening.

Game has been taken from the recent tournament (Grand Slam 2012), played between chess genius Calsen as black and Fabiano. Game was full of swindles but at last Carlsen did penultimate mistake under time pressure and lost the game in winning position but the way he handled the endgame was just fabulous.

Before presenting you annotated game, let me give you the list of some good books on french defence.
