  cocker: The World Champion missed a little tactic with 27 c4. Now 27 ... Rxc4 loses the exchange, and 27 ... Bxc4 loses the bishop after 28 Rc1 and Bxa6. Best seems to be 27 ... Bc6 28 Bxa6 when White should win easily.
Sep-04-15  SimplicityRichard: <cocker> This simplest of facts may be evidence or is indicative of the Champion's leaning towards the positional-strategic style. The Champion had already foreseen how to win the game positionally and therefore easily missed a simple tactic.#

Well, if we want to make excuses we could also say it's a rapid game and an exhibition. But I appreciate <cocker> pointing the tactics out. Hard to believe Black has no resource after 27....Bxc4 28.Rc1, but I don't see anything.

Really nice game overall. Carlsen occasionally channels Capablanca in fast games. See, e.g., Carlsen vs Naiditsch, 2015

Sep-04-15  SimplicityRichard: <keypusher> I agree. In fact, after my earlier post I wanted to add what you have suggested; it's a rapid game, and therefore easy to miss simple things. Good game though.#
