Sep-17-13  PromoteToKing: Great attack from Elijanov, the Queen and Knight posted on g5/h6 respectively almost seems like an amateurish attempt for a mate. However Karjakin did not see the threats that would come about with 21. Bd5 where 22. Qxg6+ will soon follow.

  ChessHigherCat: <PromoteToKing: Great attack from Elijanov, the Queen and Knight posted on g5/h6 respectively almost seems like an amateurish attempt for a mate. However Karjakin did not see the threats that would come about with 21. Bd5 where 22. Qxg6+ will soon follow.> I think Karjakin must have been duly freaked out by move 16, where his position is already clearly indefensible with the weaknesses on the dark squares, white's heavy artillery staring right at big daddy and most of his own pieces on the wrong side of the board. What seems amateurish was letting the Q invade in the first place, but he didn't have much choice because 16..Kg7 17. Rh5 looks bad for black, too.
