World Champion Magnus Carlsen has bounced back from his first round loss to Hikaru Nakamura to lead the Bilbao Masters after 3 rounds. In round 2 he defeated Wei Yi, while his third round win was over his World Championship challenger, Sergey Karjakin.
Carlsen chose a fairly unambitious Anti-Silcilian line, although Karjakin did not fall for the trick of taking the e pawn on move 4 (4… Nxe4?? 5 Qa4+). After some play on the queenside, the action shifted across the board and just as they approached time control, Carlsen broke through with a winning attack.
With the other 2 games drawn, Carlsen leads with 2 wins (and a loss), while Nakamura is second with 1 win (over Carlsen).
