Jul-27-06  Marmot PFL: If it is the draw, the Moro-Radjabov game is worth watching.
Jul-27-06  babakova: Not many grandmasters are this dangerous with black though. Bruzon had to earn his draw despite the fact he was white.
Jul-27-06  alekhine101: <virginmind>Yes I am sorry, you have. Can someone please give us a refutation for Qd2+?
Jul-27-06  boz: "Guys, I am a novice. Just humor me. What if instead of Ne3, Carlsen had played Qd2+??" I think white would play Kf1.
Jul-27-06  gmgomes: draw agreed!
Jul-27-06  percyblakeney: Carlsen has had black in three of four games, his only white was against the highest rated player, and still he's +2 after four rounds...
Jul-27-06  crwynn: right, no ...Ra7 because of Qd8 mate, so this is a dead draw.
Jul-27-06  Atking: Yes but he could be a bit more tired than Bruzon. No draw in 23 or 18 moves.

  keypusher: <Alekhine> see honza post above. there is no refutation, it's pretty much the same as the game.

  Mateo: Draw. A great battle but not a great game from the technical point of view in my opinion.
Jul-27-06  Dres1: this game is disgusting if Carlsen doesnt win. im mad at him.. the suckies sucker to ever suck!~
Premium Chessgames Member Draw official. We hope to see you tomorrow at 8:00am (EDT) for the next round.
Jul-27-06  chessic eric: I think Carlsen threw away advantage when he missed 35...Nc3! forking rook and bishop. Haven't analyzed it deeply yet, but i think that would have won the exchange and given Bruzon more to think about before the time control.
Jul-27-06  suenteus po 147: <> Thanks for the live games! They are so awesome to watch.
Jul-27-06  spirit: is this a perpetual?
Jul-27-06  JYMMI: as I said...
Jul-27-06  Ulhumbrus: It looks like a draw.
Jul-27-06  Atking: Again a great mind battle. Thanks
Jul-27-06  onesax: 35. ... Nc3 36. Bxe8 traded rooks and probably minor pieces too.
Jul-27-06  maxfrank: It looks like Carlsen had winning chances with 43..Ne4 44 Rc2 Qe1 45 b5!? Nd2! 46 Qh1 QxQ 47 KxQ NxB 48 axb3 etc. As pointed out earlier, 44 Bc2? seems to be a problem but 44...Qxa2 keeps black on top.
Jul-27-06  spirit: aha... chessbookies!
Jul-27-06  AdrianP: Very good game and probably the right result. Impressive the way Carlsen managed to turn around what looked like a very uncomfortable position with a series of very accurate moves. Credit to Bruzon for negotiating his way through time trouble.

I don't think Nc3 wins the exchange. 36. Be8 Ne4 37

Nov-20-09  WhiteRook48: 44 Rxe6!
