Jun-10-19  BOSTER: Rook on c1.

  PawnSac: < Sally Simpson: One idea is ..Bg7 >

He must have heard you SS. lol Yea Bg7 is an idea but i kinda preferred Ra7 to unpin the pawn and get rid of the fork possibility. If black wants to try and create an outside passer ..c5 seems like a decent plan.

Jun-10-19  Ulhumbrus: One justification for 21 Rac1 instead of 21 Rfc1 is that after 21..Rc7 the other rook may come to d1 keeping Black's king out of d7 and preparing Rd6

  Sally Simpson: Hi Pawn sac,

Actually had Ra7 down after Ding played a6, Black is going to untangle himself with f5 and connect the Rooks.

Jun-10-19  Ulhumbrus: 23 Rc3 makes way for the manoeuvre Ra1-d1-d6
Jun-10-19  Ulhumbrus: 23 Rc5 also makes way for the manoeuvre Ra1-d1-d6
Jun-10-19  LameJokes: Can white king penetrate king side?
Jun-10-19  LameJokes:

I sometimes intentionally try to post jokes on the forum.

On other occasions, I end up with unintentional jokes.

When I post chess opinions.

Jun-10-19  Ulhumbrus: 23 h5 does one useful thing: It gets rid of a weak white pawn.
Jun-10-19  Ulhumbrus: 23 h5 loses a tempo towards developing the queen's rook. This may give Black time to play ...Kb7 and ...Nd7
Jun-10-19  LameJokes: White got passed pawn in e file and black in h.
Jun-10-19  Ulhumbrus: After 24...fxg6 White needs to fear Black's distant passed h- pawn in the ending less because he has a bishop for a knight
Premium Chessgames Member
  Count Wedgemore: Now Ding has an important strategic decision to make. Shall he take back on g6 with the f-pawn or the h-pawn? If he plays 24...fxg6, he gets a passer on the h-file. The flipside is that White gets a passer on the e-file. But an outside passed pawn may be better than a central one. So 24...fxg6 looks better than 24...hxg6, at least to me.
Jun-10-19  Ulhumbrus: 25...Rc7-d7 makes way for the move ...Kc7
Jun-10-19  BOSTER: <CW> You are right, and now rooks are united.
Jun-10-19  Ulhumbrus: 26...Rc7-d7 prepares to chop wood on the d file
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: black needs to:

1) get a Rook on the d file

2) post his knight on c4

3) improve his King position

and Ding can win this game.

  AdolfoAugusto: Im really dissapointed. I was expecting a fight, not a dry and slow concession.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Keyser Soze: Hmmm. Carlsen is getting himself in trouble. He might even lose this one.
Jun-10-19  Nazim12: I dont lnow but whatever gymnastic do . computer final score shows Draw
Jun-10-19  Ulhumbrus: On the official site they have reached move 31.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Count Wedgemore: Carlsen has a lousy position with no winning chances. This is a draw or a win for Black. White has nothing in the position, except for a bishop that is marginally better than the knight in this position, perhaps. But that doesn't count for much given that White's queenside pawns are quite vulnerable. Ding has definitely some good winning chances here. And, as <BOSTER> noted, he has now connected the rooks. Always a good thing to do!
Jun-10-19  Nazim12: Why play stopped
Premium Chessgames Member
  Count Wedgemore: Seems like we've lost the connection for the time being.
Jun-10-19  Ulhumbrus: On the official site they have reached a rook and pawns ending after 36 fxe4
