  Mateo: Carlsen played very well this ending.

47... c5 ? should lead to a quick win for White after 48. f6! So Kharlov should have played 47... gf.

  Mateo: 53. Kd6?! (better 53. Nf6) should lead to no more than a draw for White after 53... Nf5. Kharlov should have played 54... Ne3 55. Kd6 Nf5, with a draw.
