  Gilmoy: Neat idea: Caruana just lets Black spend tempi to "win" e5, then plays on the weak white squares.

Bg7-e5-d4 looks like a formidable center, but its utter lack of mobility means Black is almost a piece down. In contrast, the <27.Be4> blockade-outpost is untouchable by pawns, and dominates both wings. The contrast between those two is surely worth a few pawns: here, have another one ...

36...Bf8 should be better.



37.c5+ ! the queen go together with eduardos rook and bishop but caruanas queen is very formidable on board.

Feb-09-12  timhortons: the game continues until 60, actually after 36...qc7, his position started to melt, like a frozen butter on top of a newly toasted bread.
