  tamar: Looking for improvements for White,

29 Qd2 is much more tenacious than 29 c4

after 29 Qd2 Bc4 30 Qf4 Bxd5 31 exd5 Rxd5
32 Qxf3 pawns are even, but Black still has the initiative.

Shredder gives 32...Rd3 33 Re3 Rxe3 34 Qxe3 Rd3 35 Qxc5 Rxh3 36 Qc4 h5

Black's initiative persists! But White still has some drawing chances -.67/18

Nov-14-07  notyetagm: Beautiful game by Magnus, beating a 2700 with Black.

  patzer2: <Resignation Trap> Thanks for pointing out the surprise decoy combination starting with 32...Bxc4!! This leads to a simplification giving Carlsen the Queen for two Rooks, which is not normally a winning exchange -- except that here he also gets a decisive passed pawn!

It's instructive to follow how Carlsen integrates the pin, double attack, passed pawn and mate threat tactics together in this combination.

  whiteshark: There is a notable discrepancy between game's kibitzing and mentioning in game collections.

  whiteshark: <Joke OK van> could have done better with <20.f3> instead of abandoning the d-file. <20...Rxd1+ 21.Rxd1 f5>

Now it's getting complicated:

22.Qc2 / exf5 / Bd6 are likely candidate moves.

Nov-24-08  notyetagm: A *tremendous* game by Carlsen.
Dec-05-08  arsen387: Stupenduous!! Carlsen's pieces though far from each other are so coordinated at the same time. To my patzer eyes this looks like magic

  chancho: Masterful stuff. And he's only 18. Did I say he's only 18? Whoa!
Dec-26-09  philchess: Why not 14... Bxe2? Winning a pawn?

Then 15.e4 wouldn't be possible...

Jan-15-10  Bobwhoosta: ...15. Bxe2 is met by 16.c4, and Black loses either a piece or is down two pieces for the rook.

Nov-25-14  notyetagm: Jakovenko vs Carlsen, 2007

What a combination by Carlsen!

Jan-09-15  ajax333221: 40...Qf1 was missed, I guess once you look into a way of simplifying the position into a quick win you stop looking.
Dec-20-16  Dave12: 24..Nc4 has a very nice tactical point, because after 25.Bf1 e5 26.Bc1 black plays Rd1.
