|Aug-30-10|| ||HeMateMe: Carlsen's wide King sweep to the right, temporarily giving up a second pawn, was very interesting.|

She played 94...Nf6+, but it appears that she had a much stronger move: 94...Bc3!
This seems to place her bishop on an ideal square for supporting both passed pawns, while also vacating e5 for the knight (from where it can attack Pc4). In other lines, the knight goes to b6 to support the a-pawn against white's LSB. From there it can also go to c8 and then d6 to support the e-pawn.
I'm not sure if the position is winning for black or not, but I suspect that it is. In any case, black has to play very accurately to avoid losing, because some very reasonable white looking moves (like 95.Kf4) appear to lose.
|Mar-09-12|| ||master of defence: Why not 84...Nxe5?|
|Mar-10-12|| ||kellmano: <master of defence> What were you thinking after 85. Bf4? The only way to keep th eknight is 85 ......Kd6, but Black can make no progress then.|
