Mar-02-07  Dionyseus: Did Carlsen miss 39...Kf6 ?

Analysis by Rybka 2.3.1 mp Beta mp x64 2CPU:
39...Kf6 40.Rxc5 Kg5 41.Ng2 Nxf5
(-0.94) Depth: 20 00:00:47 11186kN, tb=29

Mar-02-07  Resignation Trap: Time control's been made, be prepared for a long think!
Mar-02-07  hitman84: Carlsen will be dissapointed, he squandered the advantage in the middlegame with one lousy move.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eyal: Carlsen may have missed 39...Rb8, instead of c4.
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: I haven't followed many Carlsen games live but this is the first time I've seen him in serious time pressure. His ability to avoid time crunches is a huge asset, especially for a junior. Conversely, his opponents often seem to be pressed for time.
Mar-02-07  Dionyseus: <Eyal> Rybka liked 39...Rb8, but liked Kf6 even more. Then again, I only gave it 47 seconds.
Mar-02-07  hitman84: What do we have here after the time scramble..
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: The pin is very uncomfortable for Black, so I expect a draw soon
Mar-02-07  Billy Ray Valentine: Might black now play Nf7?
Mar-02-07  Billy Ray Valentine: Woops. I now see why that doesn't work...
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: A wild winning attempt is 41...Kg5 42 Ne3 Kf4 43 Nxc4 e3 but White probably has more careful methods, as 41...Kg5 does not solve the pin
Mar-02-07  weisyschwarz: Draw!
Premium Chessgames Member
  chancho: <tamar> yup, you got it right.
Mar-02-07  Billy Ray Valentine: For a draw, that was quite tense...
Premium Chessgames Member Thanks to everybody for coming by today. The next round will be tomorrow morning at 9:30am (US/Eastern).
Mar-02-07  boz: Moro really needed that half-point.
Mar-02-07  Billy Ray Valentine: So what should Carlsen have played instead of 27...e4 in order to preserve an advantage?
Mar-02-07  Octavia: that's 14.30 gmt

  Eyal: <Billy Ray Valentine: So what should Carlsen have played instead of 27...e4 in order to preserve an advantage?> 27...e4 was ok; the problem was probably with 30...h6, rather than Re5.
Mar-02-07  Tacticstudent: another draw? c'mon...
Mar-02-07  Open Defence: so the boy does play the Open Defence :) nice

  keypusher: hmm, just got back after long meeting, can't believe it's still in progress!
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: Ah, my timing was impeccable, I see. Well, looks like it was a good game!

thanks as always,

Mar-02-07  technical draw: <keypusher> The meeting or the game? Cause the game ended a couple of hours ago.
