  Penguincw: Carlsen should never take risks against Ivanchuk.
Mar-17-11  fab4: He didn't. This was just a straightforward blunder in a blidfold game.

Oh.Well,at least this wasn't as worst as Carlsen's 25th move in Grischuk vs Carlsen, 2010.

  Penguincw: Rc7 is strong,but I think Rc8 is better.It forces the exchange of rooks which just benefits white.Any material exchange that doesn't lose material would benefit white (unless there's some trick involved in it).
