Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-12-04  Bobsterman3000: Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but 31. Qe5 is a colossal blunder for the ages. 31. Qe2 would have been much better -- at least white could remain one pawn down for a time, instead of being 5 pawns down by move 51...
Jul-12-04  acirce: But pawn up in a pawn endgame is generally a simple win. With Qe5 at least White saw a desperate hope of a perpetual (I guess.)
Nov-01-16  Dave12: 12..N or Bd7 would also be good for black, given the white bad bishop. but ke7 is simple and stronger, the better development tells.
Nov-01-16  John Abraham: it's a pretty good game from Carlsen...but it must be hard for white to lose to a 13 year old!
