  luzhin: Yes, it's surprising how Fabiano lags so far behind the other top players, at Blitz. Incidentally I wonder if Carlsen had seen that, instead of 21...Be7??, Black had 21...Kb6 22.Rxd8 Bc5!! after which it's White who's in trouble.

  ajk68: <luzhin>: Do you have a deeper line?

Playing it forward a bit with the help of a weak computer, it looks like a very dynamic draw - which would probably be won by Carlsen with his endgame technique (fits his style completely).

  Breunor: Soltis has this game in his column today. He gives:

22 Rd8 Bc5 then
1. 23 Rxh8 Qxf2
2. 23 Qe6 Ka5 24 Rd2 Rd8

That second line is nice, but -- c'mon, Andy! It's a blitz game!
