too little too late

  Eyal: Carlsen missed a chance to claim a draw by threefold repetition on moves 79, 81 & 83.

  RookFile: Can you claim a draw without a scoresheet? I really don't know, I haven't played in a blitz tournament in years.

  Eyal: In this tournament, at least, I know that players are claiming both threefold repetitions ( and 50 moves.

  ajile: What an ending. Good maneuvering to force the check and fork of the rook.
Dec-30-16  Bondsamir: It's never too late!
Dec-30-16  Atking: Well it is just a blitz but I don't understand why Carlsen sacrificed his Q.
Dec-30-16  ChessHigherCat: <Atking: Well it is just a blitz but I don't understand why Carlsen sacrificed his Q.> Good question but I don't think he had any good alternatives. White is "forked" and if he moves the Q then NxR, BxR, and black can probably finagle another minor piece out of the deal (bishop or knight)

  JCigan: There was no repetition as far as I can see
