I think he wouldn´t allow 43-Qd1+ with counterplay.

Nov-09-14  WickedPawn: This game has just been mentioned by Peter Svidler commenting on Magnus Carlsen's options for move 24 of game 2 of the 2014 World Chess Championship match against Vishy Anand. It is great to follow chess free of computer evaluations and just to follow top GMs speak out their thinking process.
Nov-09-14  ex0duz: During the Carlsen-Anand 2014 WC commentary, Svidler mentioned this game as a rival to Short's "Immortal King Walk" game vs Timman.. Do you guys think Wang Hao had seen all this and planned it AFTER move 26. Bg5? Or perhaps before that, and he saw it while playing 20. f5, and locking in the kingside pawn structure which allowed his king somewhat of a 'safe haven' and to be a part of the subsequent attack?

I'm surprised this game hasn't generated more comments since everyone likes Shorts game.. is it somehow not as 'deep' or something since even I can see the idea and/or coming attack after 26. Bg5?

White king is attacking, when oponent's
queen and rook are still on the board!
