   Dec-03-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: Here is a question. If for both Carlsen and Radjabov their respective palmistry readings were taken, their respective numerology computed and their respective horoscopes cast would all six findings confirm that Carlsen instead of Radjabov was born for the purpose of gaining the ...

Ulhumbrus: GM Wesley So has this to say of the move 16...Ng6: <Perhaps a small inaccuracy. The knight was just fine on e7, to guard the d5 and f5 squares. In fact Black has on his agenda an active option here to try to seize the initiative: 16...d5 17 exd5 cxd5 18 Nxd5 Nxd5 19 Bxd5 Rd8 20

Ulhumbrus: Carlsen clinches the game with a queen sacrifice. Congratulations to Carlsen who has kept his title.

Ulhumbrus: Perhaps after 14 exd5 Karjakin had to find a way to free his king's bishop by the pawn advance d3-d4.

Ulhumbrus: The comments of Svidler and the Stockfish analysis taken together suggest that Carlsen could have overlooked - perhaps partly because of time trouble - that after 73 Be6+ Kh8 74 Bf8 Ra7 he could obstruct the Black's rook's defence of the g7 pawn by 75 Bf7!

Ulhumbrus: It begins to look like a drawn ending

Ulhumbrus: The chessbase site quotes Carlsen saying <I didn't feel today was the day to take major chances.> This suggests that Carlsen offered Karjakin chances to go wrong but was not going to play unsoundly in order to do it, as possibly he had done in game 8.

Ulhumbrus: GM Svidler has indicated the devilish sequence 28...Qb3 29 Rxe2?? Qd1+ 30 Kf2 Rf8
 
   Nov-24-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
 
Ulhumbrus: One justification for 13...Bxf3 instead of 13...exd4 is that in this way Black doubles White's f pawns without having to pay more for it in the way of conceding space by 13...exd4 not to mention bringing the N on b5 back into play by 14 Nxd4. Imagine the game proceeding for a few ...

Ulhumbrus: It would be interesting to know what Carlsen's own explanation is. One example of a guess is as follows. Carlsen tried to test Karjakin's knowledge and skill. There was just one thing wrong with this plan: Carlsen tried it in time pressure, and that turned the game into a ...
