FIDE Candidates Rd1: Gelfand rolls six pawns to win

FIDE Candidates Rd1: Gelfand rolls six pawns to win
No recollection of anything like this in world championship history comes to mind. Sac by sac, and move by move, Gelfand was down more and more material for pawns against Mamedyarov until his grand total was a full SIX pawns for a rook. Astonishing. Here is the report on game three, with video of the Daily Wrap-up show, as well as the lucid and highly instructive annotations by GM Alejandro Ramirez.
