|Nov-18-10|| ||Eyal: Two winning opportunities missed by Carlsen in this game: 15.g6! (15...hxg6 16.Nxe6! Be5 17.Rxf7! clearing the f1 square for the king to avoid perpetual after ...Bxh2+) and 33.g5!!|
|Nov-19-10|| ||anandrulez: Eyal : Just before the g6 idea , it was mostly = . After Carlsen missed g6 , Nakamura became positionally better all the while and until missing 33..g5 which would have given a chance for white again . Overall Nakamura did play better than Carlsen in this game , though Carlsen had 2 WINNING moves thanks to Naka's sharp play .|

must be awesome
|Dec-21-10|| ||elohah: What's going on here?
Why does he keep beating Carlsen like a drum??
9...!! The novelty of the Century!!
14...? Yeah. Better 14...Qe7, or
14...Nc4! 15 Bxc4 dxc4 16 g6 hg 17 Nxe6 fxe6.
30...Ng3 still wins.
|Dec-21-10|| ||Eyal: <9...!! The novelty of the Century!!> Perhaps when Morozevich played it in 2005... (Anand vs Morozevich, 2005) |
<29...Ng3 wins.> Actually, White can get the advantage after 30.Rexe5+! fxe5 31.Rg5! gaining back the piece due to the double threat of Rxg3 and Rg7+ followed by 33.Rxb7.
<30...Ng3 still wins.> It still doesn't - even though the tactics mentioned in the previous don't work now, White should be at least equal with 31.Rhxe5! fxe5 32.Kf2 Ne4+ 33.Bxe4 dxe4 34.g5.
|Mar-08-11|| ||rossvassilev: am i wrong in thinking that 31.g5 wins for White?|
|Mar-08-11|| ||Kinghunt: 31. g5? is refuted by 31...Kg6! 33. g5 does win for white though. Terrible finish by Carlsen. First he misses the win, then he blunders an exchange and resigns. On the one hand, it is blitz... but on the other hand, that' still no excuse for 34. Bc2. That's the kind of move I play, he's really not supposed to.|
