  PawnSac: yes, the fixed pawns make the double threat of mate irresistible. Nice finish.

I agree about the finish, but that's about the only thing nice about the game. 40. b5 was sort of interesting too, but it's Grischuk, not Carlsen, who really does make a lot of fast insignificant moves (like playing the knights to the back rank and back) waiting for his opponent to make a mistake. He has great technique, of course, but he doesn't seem to have any guiding plan and doesn't even want one (something he has in common with some professional blitz-players I've known).
