Using the active notation
You might be inclined to believe the game notations below are just to be looked at and the moves to be played through in your mind. But as most of you know you can click on the moves to get a separate replay board, which you can resize and move to the best place on your screen.
The popup board has full controls, and you can use the navigation buttons to advance the moves, as well as use an engine or save the game or position to your computer. In the engine window you can ask for multiple lines, or what the threat is, or see the positional evaluation of the position.

It is a close affair in this sample as Wesley So drops a tactical bomb on Carlsen’s lap, giving himself a winning position in the process. It is a tense but fascinating struggle between the two.
To the bitter end
Magnus knows he has the better position but faces monumental defensive efforts by his rival. Don’t miss this fascinating end.
