  Count Wedgemore: <CHC: If black believes in his attack he'll play Rh8>

He can play ...Bg4 first if he so wants.

  ChessHigherCat: <CW> Well he didn't so wanted despite your generous authorisation

  Count Wedgemore: He did play 23...Rh8, what <CHC> suggested. But I do think he might have played 23...Bg4 first. Anyway, I don't believe much in Black's attack.

  Mateo: 23...Rh8 was the most ambitious move, but it is a bit risky. 24.Ra4 could be a key move now.

  Count Wedgemore: <CHC> You see how fun we can have watching chess together, as long as we don't mention Trump, Putin or Russia :)

It's like that scene from Fawlty Towers: "Don't mention the war"..

  ChessHigherCat: Black has a good attack with Mamed the Mammoth behind it but he can't afford to trade everything down with Ne4

  Count Wedgemore: I guess the natural follow-up for Black is to play ...hxg3. I don't think he would have played 23...Rh8 if that wasn't his plan.

  Messiah: <ChessHigherCat> did you try to be as rude as Justin?
Apr-04-19  Atking: I still do not see where is the "attack" on King side?
Apr-04-19  BOSTER: With hxg3 black open h file.

Nothing wrong with your eyes. There is none! Now after 25...Ne4, White can exchange both sets of minor pieces, and after that he has absolutely nothing to worry about.

  Mateo: 26.Nxe4 was a cautious move. 26.Qxb4 Nxg3!? should be what Carlsen was fearing.

For someone as consistently obnoxious as you are your "Emily Post" act is pretty pathetic

  ChessHigherCat: I said he had to avoid trading down the minor pieces to maintain the attack.
Apr-04-19  Atking: I took time to me to see what White should play on 25...Qe6 26.Qb1 Qg4 27.Re5 Qf3 28.Qxe4 Rh1... Time to sleep 26.d5! as 26...Qh3 27.Qa1 this check disconnects the link R and Q and on 27...f6 28.Ra7

  Mateo: What do you think about 33.Qxh5?
Apr-04-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  chancho: They agreed to a draw.
Apr-04-19  BOSTER: My opinion this is wrong because Qxb3.
Apr-04-19  Pedro Fernandez: Black b-pawn is too much dangerous. Carlsen's best is a draw.
Apr-04-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  Count Wedgemore: As noted by others here, Qxh5 was too dangerous because of ...Qxb3. After 33.Qxh5 Qxb3, White has nothing better than to force a perpetual (Qg5+, Qd8+ etc.).
Apr-04-19  Pedro Fernandez: <<Mateo>: What do you think about 33.Qxh5?> Perpetual.
Apr-04-19  Ulhumbrus: <Atking: I took time to me to see what White should play on 25...Qe6 26.Qb1 Qg4 27.Re5 Qf3 28.Qxe4 Rh1... Time to sleep 26.d5! as 26...Qh3 27.Qa1 this check disconnects the link R and Q and on 27...f6 28.Ra7> I assume that you mean not 25...Qe6 etc but 28...Qe6 etc. Thus if Black's queen prepares to occupy the h file the answer is for White's queen to prepare to occupy the long diagonal. An instructive variation.
