Jul-25-11  Marmot PFL: The Moro-Shirov game is still very interesting and complicated
Jul-25-11  Michel Lassalle: All French cannot win against Magnus.

  watwinc: Once again, Carlsen simply traps a piece!

  Sokrates: Wow, that's the second win by Carlsen, when he traps an officer. Quite a rare occurence, I'd say. I hadn't dreamed that he'd win this game, so tillykke Magnus!
Jul-25-11  Ulhumbrus: The move 40..h5?? looks like a losing blunder. Instead of 40...h5, 40..Rh3 seems necessary.
Jul-25-11  scormus: <Ulhumbrus: The finish suggests that the move 40 Ke2!! warrants two exclamation marks.> I have an idea he planned it when he played 39 Ke3
Jul-25-11  kakisto: <Michel Lassalle: All French cannot win against Magnus.> Actually, Yannick is from Switzerland.
Jul-25-11  scormus: Thanks <CG>, well done <MC>
Jul-25-11  Michel Lassalle: Ouf ! (that Pelletier is not French (:-) )

By the way, why not take simply the h2 pawn at move 39 ? Thes GM sometimes are "making nodes with their neurones".

Jul-25-11  Ulhumbrus: <kakisto: <Michel Lassalle: All French cannot win against Magnus.> Actually, Yannick is from Switzerland.> Besides which Vachier-Lagrave won a good game against him in the previous round.
Jul-25-11  Michel Lassalle: It is what I wxas refering to. I attended that game, not exciting but very instructive for an amateur like me.

On the board

Jul-25-11  beenthere240: Or over the board (that is, not in subsequent analysis).
Jul-25-11  beenthere240: Is the score incomplete? As I recall, black played 40... h5?, a blunder that ignored white's threat of Rf7+ followed by Rc7 and black must lose a piece.

However, if black plays 40...Rh3 as was suggested, it seems to me that white can still play Rf7+ followed by Rc7 and then push the f pawn.

Jul-25-11  Ulhumbrus: <beenthere240: Is the score incomplete? As I recall, black played 40... h5?, a blunder that ignored white's threat of Rf7+ followed by Rc7 and black must lose a piece. However, if black plays 40...Rh3 as was suggested, it seems to me that white can still play Rf7+ followed by Rc7 and then push the f pawn.> After 40...Rh3 Black's QB is not tied to the defence of the Rook so after 41 Rf7+ Kh8 42 f6 Bxb3 is possible
Jul-25-11  kappertjes: Looks like Carlsen dropped a whopping 80 points for his loss against VL. That'll teach him to stay awake next time ;-).

To me the transition into the endgame from move 19 to 22 is fascinating. Both must have seen the following position and accepted it. The difference is that, apparently, Pelletier should not have.

Jul-25-11  cjgone: Amazing piece trap. :P

HEISMAN: <The logic “a guarded piece is not really guarded if the guard can be taken or attacked” is not emphasized in most beginner’s books.>

<<<<EPHIPHANY>>>: if your <DEFENDER> can be attacked, then it is *not* a <DEFENDER> but rather it is a <TARGET> for the enemy to attack! That is what NM Dan Heisman is saying: <<<it's not a <DEFENDER>, it's a <TARGET>>>>>!

What is the other game at <BIEL 2011> that Carlsen won by <TRAPPING> a piece?

Thanks
