Carlsen Escapes In LondonLondon Chess Classic, Magnus Carlsen pulled off an escape worthy of Houdini in his game against Kramnik to rescue a draw.
Kramnik simplified to a seemingly winning endgame, but somehow hit a brick wall when trying to convert his advantage.
In the other games, Anand managed to hold Adams to a draw, McShane clung on against Nakamura, and Short drew an entertaining King's Gambit with Howell.
