May-23-07  Tvangeste: 72.e7?? 72.Nxc2 wins easily...
May-23-07  JanTimman: Yes!
72.Nxc2 - Rxd7
73.exd7 - Ke7
and white wins
Jul-10-07  wittmann: Radjabov had a lost position as soon as move 9. Instead of 9. Nc3 Carlsen should have played 9. b4! as after 9... Be6 10. Bxc6+ bxc6 11. Qa6 Bb6 12. a4! Black is loosing material without compensation. Even Super-GMs don't always play precisely.
Aug-12-11  noel G: after 9. Nc3 Be6 10. Bxc6+ bxc6 11. Qa6 Bb6 12. a4... , it appears that 12 ... Nxe4 13. a5 Bxf2+ 14. Rxf2 Nxf2 15. Qxc6+ Kf7 16. Kxf2 (or 16. Ng5+ Kg6 17. Kxf2), black could manage the position well.

Shame on you for impersonating a famous grandmaster!

After your 'winning line' Black marches his king onto the rook file (h file) and so long as his king starts on the right coloured square white will not be able to displace him and queen the pawn.
