  luzhin: Interesting that Svidler chose the Caro-Kann in a must-win game for Black. He conjured tremendous tactics out of nowhere. After 15..Bh5! 16.Nxb4 Nh4 17.Qc1 Bxf3 18.gxf3 Nxf3+ 19.Kg2 Qh4 20.h3 Qe4!! is crushing. And after the remarkable 22..Be3 if 23.fxe3 Nxg3 24 hxg3 Qxg3+ 25.Kh1 Rxf1+ 26.Qxf1 Rc2 wins. It seems that Svidler missed a much stronger continuation with 26...Rfc8! White made a strange blunder with 33.g4??, playing his moves in the wrong order. After 33.Qf1+! Qf5 34.g4! White could still hope to achieve the draw he needed to win the event.
