  Mateo: One of Carlsen's skills is his capacity for changing a small edge in the ending into a win. This shouldn't be a surprise. Tactical players often are strong endgame players.

I think the fatal error was 48...Kf7? allowing 49.e4! giving White a supported passed pawn. If 49...fxe4 50.Bd6 Rd7 (the same after 50...e3+ 51.Ke1) 51.Rxd7 Bxd7 52.Rf8+ Kg6 53.f5+ with a winning fork. 48...Bf7 was better. If 49.e4 fxe4 50.Bd6 Re8, Black holds.

53...Be8? loses a pawn, but even after 53...Bd5 54.a3, White wins slowly. Black is in his little bow without any counterplay.

Are they? I've always operated under the impression that endgames were more an exercise in plans and general ideas, though naturally calculation plays a big part a well. It just seems like a positional player would be better suited to an endgame than a tactical one.

Mar-17-17  Dave12: 49.e4! is a beautiful-typical move in this position, but the way Magnus reached it is just brilliant.
