It was played a very complicate variation , I think, for the blindfold. 23.Kg2 - 1.65
Losing this game Magnus lost the first place in the tournament ( Aronian performed 1 point in the last round), and took the second. Congrat. especially for the rapid ( 9 1/2 points out of 11 !!! incredible)
Feb-21-13  Biff The Understudy: Playing blindfold a king's indian against Carlsen sounds about just as fun as boxing against Mike Tyson with a single hand. Amazing Gelfand
