Nov-13-17  kardopov: Ding must be Worrying now that he won this game. His preparation for the candidates was exposed in this Taimanov line. The piano plays grandiously.

  Gilmoy: In this database, we have:

+4=16-2 <11.Re1>

+0=02-0 <11..Rc8 12.Qf3>

The "novelty" is <12..Bd6>, self-blocking the d-pawn and inviting White to shatter the K-side. Carlsen promptly does that, but Ding calmly plays <16..Ke7> and doubles Rs on half-open g.

Carlsen's adventurous <15.Qh5> didn't go so well, but he's looking at a 5-v-0 on the K-side. Maybe he deliberately did this in rapid just to explore the position.

♫♪♫ Clang, clang, clang went the trolley,
Ding, ding, ding went the bell,
Zing, zing, zing went my heart strings,
From the monent I saw him I fell.
Chug, chug, chug went the motor,
Bump, bump, bump went the brake,
Thump, thump, thump went my heart strings,
When he smiled I could feel the car shake.
He tipped his hat, and took a seat.
He said he hoped he hadn't stepped upon my feet. He asked my name, I held my breath.
I couldn't speak because he scared me half to death. ♫♪♫
