Jul-16-13  Doniez: Strange, the best Italian player loses with White playing an Italian game. What about his chance to survive after 23. g3 followed by 24. Re1?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gilmoy: 10.91-yr-old Caruana grubbed a few too many pawns. (10 yr 333d) Surely he knew his position was falling apart, but vs. a 44-yr-old GM in a huge tourney hall, adrenaline short-circuits clear thinking.

<Doniez: 23.g3> Qf2#, hence nil.

Dec-27-19  Great Bear: If 23.Ne4, then Bc4#. The White's king flight via 23.Ke1 leads to ...Bc4 24.Kd1 (Kf1 Qf2#) Be2 25. Kc1 (Ke1 Qf2#, or Kc2 Re3: Pc3 is about to fall and mate will follow soon) Qc3 26.Kb1 Bd3 27.Ka2 Ra4#
Dec-27-19  Great Bear: Pardon me, after 23. Ne4 Bc4 is not mate, because of 24.Ke1. So ...Qe3 has to follow, 25. Kd1 Bb3#
