  keypusher: <zborris8> Carlsen had a couple of wins at moves 49 (49.Re8 Re7 50.Rf8+ Ke6 51.Qd4) and 50 per the report. Not exactly obvious.
Jan-05-18  WorstPlayerEver: Well... *scrapes throat -like I am about something important to say*... 49. Rd8 is a key move.
Jan-05-18  WorstPlayerEver: 49. Rd8 Qc6 50. Rf8+ Ke7 51. Qg7+ Kd6 52. Qf6+ Kd5 53. Qd4+ Ke6 54. Rf6
