Feb-01-09  ontocaustic: yu cant win after such sickening play, maybe he will still offer a draw since he does not deserve to win against carlson
Feb-01-09  Crowaholic: <Can black sac the exchange? Bxp then RxN> Deep Shredder says no. 61. ..Bxf6 62. Kd6 Rxd5+ 63. Kxd5 +279.62 (22/22)

(A score of 279.something is Shredder's way of saying certain victory.)

Feb-01-09  HFBA: Where are the doubled rooks on the open D file?

Just kidding guys.

Feb-01-09  adhitthana: <what would teh response have been to Be3+> Rooks off (?) then Wang has two pawns much closer to queening?

Are you even watching the same game as everyone else?

  Pulse: <Domdaniel> If by "nobody" you mean a GM, then I'd have to agree. Please don't think to assume that such moves are obvious if you're not using an engine like I am. Anyway I think the resulting position is hopeless. 1-0 soon.

  Ulhumbrus: After 62 Kd6!! Black appears to have no useful reply while White threatens Ra8+ followed by Nxf6+ and e7
Feb-01-09  AuN1: hey, look at this, carlsen is now using his time. a fascinating turn of events.

I would agree with <Dom>, and I'm not using an engine either.

Feb-01-09  SEANESS: should Black resign here , i don't see anyway of stopping the e pawm?

  Eisenheim: I still would force some more play before quitting here (every time I have said this though, its been the kiss of death!)
Feb-01-09  Cacoethes: <Woody Wood Pusher: < ontocaustic: yu cant win after such sickening play, maybe he will still offer a draw since he does not deserve to win against carlson>

Are you even watching the same game as everyone else?> He's watching the same game - however, as AuN1 has already pointed out, his vantage point is somewhat restricted...

  Domdaniel: Wang Yue has played brilliantly here -- great defence against Carlsen's attack, then taking advantage of small errors to exploit a minimal edge. A great win for him.
Feb-01-09  ontocaustic: carslesn can always sacriface apiece to stop the e pawn his king and two pawsn can drawl
Feb-01-09  AuN1: anyone know how the smeets v. aronian game turned out?

Feb-01-09  ontocaustic: yeah, just like aune's is whne he is part of federers butt
Feb-01-09  percyblakeney: I don't think it's one of Wang Yue's more brilliant games, I don't know when Carlsen last made a blunder of this level in a top tournament, but maybe it wasn't that long ago after all.
