Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2013

Soltis wrote a mocking column in the early 1980s about another game in which that formation was featured. He wrote something like <In Reti's day the maneuver evoked hoots and gasps of awe. But today every Soviet schoolboy knows that the queen belongs on h1.>

But I can't find the game. Black won, I remember that.

Here it is.

Suttles vs Chandler, 1982

Suttles, I should have known. But I misremembered. He put the queen on a1, not h1.

Nov-14-13  KingchecksQueen: The king and queen together in her castle on move 25) Qh1. The first in WCC history. I think it is hard to find another game like this.
Nov-14-13  Albion 1959: This is more like it, a fight down to the bitter end, right down to the last pawn. The first two games were like a couple of boxers gently sparring for a couple of early rounds. Now it is time for both sides to get stuck in and land a few telling blows. If this is a taste of things to come, then maybe we will see a match worthy of a World Title contest?

  lost in space: Reti vs Lasker, 1924

the original game with white queen on a1 and h1. And white lost.

  offramp: I think 28.e3 was a very clever move by Carlsen. Black could have won a pawn a few moves later with 29...Bxb2.

...But Anand may not have liked the look of this natural line: 29... Bxb2 30. Rae1 Rb6 31. Bd5 Bd4 32. Rxe6 fxe6 33. Rxe6 Qf8.

Black is the exchange up but there are a lot of pieces hovering near his king. If you are working that out in your head then it's easy to think disaster might be just around the corner. I think Anand made a wise decision.

Nov-17-13  peltonen: I think moves ...37. Rd8 and ...39. Qd4 showed that VA didn't have a will to win that day
Nov-17-13  csmath: <I think 28.e3 was a very clever move by Carlsen. Black could have won a pawn a few moves later with 29...Bxb2.>

Carlsen received some critique here for that move even though that was active defence about which he knows more than anybody else in the world. I would fully endorse the move since this is something I liked very much when it happened and I did not change my mind afterwards.

29. Bxb2 does not lead to a win despite many comments to the opposite. As a matter of fact I think this is a safe path to a draw. Anand's gut feeling was correct.

There are some other places Anand could have played more aggressive but there is no clear path anywhere in this game toward the win. I think Carlsen would have held this no matter what was played.

What amazes me even more is how correct these two guys are right when it is happening despite the hordes of analyses afterwards in which various commentators are searching for something they cannot find.

Nov-17-13  kappertjes: <WiseWizard: I can't believe people still underestimate Anand. I don't though, I predicted he would win this match easily a long time ago.>

And so time makes fools of us all. Some more than others.

Dec-19-13  Everyone: expected <29 ...Bxb2>, when White's compensation following <30 Rae1 Rb6> appeared vague.

"What amazes me even more is how correct these two guys are right when it is happening despite the hordes of analyses afterwards in which various commentators are searching for something they cannot find."

Well said my friend, that reminds me of the feeling i have watching GM's playing blitz too.

Jan-02-14  checkmateyourmove: Magnus said after game 1, he had to pull his E brake. Game three looks like he is still getting use to his new Ferrari. :)
Mar-12-14  yureesystem: Anand completely outplay Magnus, Vishy opening incredible, a reverse Dragon. If Anand won this game, I believe he would won the match. This is the game that might have discourage Vishy and the beginning of his downfall.
Mar-12-14  Petrosianic: You know, if you massage the facts hard enough, it's actually possible to conclude that Janowski was better than Lasker. You're not quite ready for that one yet, but give it time...

I forget. How many games did Anand win in the match? (I have always liked Anand, how can you not, but results are results.)

Mar-12-14  Petrosianic: Not so Fun Fact: Carlsen is the ONLY player in history to score 65% against a defending champion. Far from being a squeaker, this was one of the more decisive changings of the guard.
Apr-09-14  joddon: tough tough game....threw off anands confidence to see that he was up against such a fighting chess machine....these two are like kasparov vs karpov in the 80s. both breathtaking move makers who wont give one another even the smallest chance to win......

Yes, one has a much more advantageous view of the board in a convertible.
