|Jan-14-18|| ||Dirkster: "Magnus the Magician" (with all due respect to the great Tal) - it's amazing how Carlsen can transform a drawish opening into a favorable middle game and a winning end game. My hat's off to him! (Well, if I were wearing a hat...)|
|Jan-14-18|| ||rogge: White should've played 25. c3.|
|Jan-14-18|| ||wtpy: rogge, no doubt, and it doesn't seem like a hard move to find.|
|Jan-14-18|| ||rogge: Indeed.|

|Jan-14-18|| ||Robyn Hode: Dirkster is right. It is amazing what Carlsen can do with seemingly even positions.|
|Jan-14-18|| ||rogge: Sure, Carlsen's trademark :)|
|Jan-14-18|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: Maybe white should tried 36 Bd3, hoping against hope for 36..Bxd3+?? 37 Kxd3, when white actually wins, but Carlsen doubtless would have played 36..c2 instead.|
|Jan-14-18|| ||keypusher: What the hell, I saw this game at move 21 and it never occurred to me that White might lose.|

|Jan-14-18|| ||An Englishman: Good Morning: In the same round, White couldn't control c4 in Yifan Hou vs Mamedyarov, 2018. Here, Black kept c5 under his control and his c-pawn eventually became the great strength of his position.|

Still, it would just have taken Carlsen a little longer to win.
|Jan-15-18|| ||rogge: Are you sure?
analysis of move 25...?
|Jan-16-18|| ||yurikvelo: Ra8 drop from +0.63 @ d22 to +0.53 @ d31 and to +0.45 @ d44|
Between engines it is draw.
