Tata Steel 2013 Group A

Here’s Aronian’s nice endgame win over Leko from Tata Group A. For more see Tatasteelchess. The site has a fantastic gallery.

Aronian obtains a better pawn structure but Leko has the bishop pair for an active defence. Later the ending is BN-BB but with Aronian having an extra pawn.
