Wednesday Workout: Carlsen Versus Rapport!

On Wednesdays, we solve tactics. And, on some Wednesdays, we solve six tactics from a single memorable blitz game. GM Magnus Carlsen's toughest obstacle on the way to his 2022 FIDE World Blitz victory was surely his heavyweight brawl against GM Richard Rapport. Here are six critical moments from what was truly a three-result game. 

Note: puzzles this week are presented in order of occurrence in the game, not in order of difficulty. 



As always, you can download a pdf worksheet with diagrams and solutions, or you can try your hand at solving them in our replayable Lichess study!
