|Jun-16-10|| ||Garech: Great game, very interesting. 15...f5 seems to have been an innaccuracy from Morozevich that allowed Carlsen to regain at least equality after giving up his knight for two centre pawns - a very creative and awe-inspiring idea. Instead of f5 Fritz thinks b6 was much better, and also Qc7, which both give black a slight edge, at least for the time being. However - Magnus is much stronger than Fritz, so I think we can rely on his judgement! |
Initially I was slightly perplexed as to the knight sac and curious as to why Morozevich didn't try and blockade the pawn. There are some great tactics Magnus had lined up, for example if: 16. ... Bd7? 17. Nxd7 Qxd7 18. Bxh6 Bxh6 19. Qd5+ picking up the loose knight at a5 and finishing up two pawns to the good, with a winning advantage of course. Awesome stuff!
|Jun-16-10|| ||newzild: This would have to be the finest game I've seen by a 16-year-old.|
From ages 15 to the present, Carlsen has proven himself stronger than any other player in history of the same age - Fischer and Kasparov included.
|Jun-16-10|| ||newzild: Carlsen became the stongest player in the world at age 19, and Fischer didn't achieve that until he was aged in his mid 20s.|
Two players who might claim to have been best in the world in their early 20s are Kasparov and Tal.
|Jun-16-10|| ||ughaibu: And Karpov, and Lasker, and Morphy.|
|Jun-16-10|| ||SetNoEscapeOn: Turtle Power...|
|Jun-16-10|| ||kevin86: The race was on! Two pawns vs two pawns. White was able to win because he threatened to queen BOTH pawns.|
|Jun-16-10|| ||corwin2: Actually Karpov wasn't, Fischer was still the best at least until 1975 when Karpov was 24 which makes it mid 20s...|
|Jun-16-10|| ||JohnBoy: <corwin2> - We don't have any information on how strong Fischer was in 1975. If he had actually played any games then there would be room for a discussion. The key word here is "player". Fischer was not... (much to my youthful disappointment at the time)|
|Jun-16-10|| ||lzromeu: be quick or be death.|
|Jun-16-10|| ||JohnBoy: I am trying without success to refute <Cameo>'s suggestion of 53...Be3. Here is what I find.|
53...Be3 54.Kb5 Bd2 55.a3 Be1 56.b4 axb4 57.a4 b3 58.a5 Bxh4 59.a6 Bf2 60.Kc4 b2 61.Kc3 h4 62.Kxb2 h3 63.Kc3 h2 and I can't find a win for white.
The idea I am dealing with is that black puts the K on e6 and then pushes the h pawn to get access to f5 and the two white king-side pawns. This will draw. White can try to prevent it with 64.Kc4 Kf7 65.Kd5, but then how to make progress?
Even if white puts the king on e5 and tries for the f5 break, black trades pawns, parks the king on g7, and shuffles the bishop back and forth. Any help?
