  Sally Simpson: I had to go out. When I left Carlsen looked to have a very tricky position...

...and was drifting behind on the clock.

He played 14....h6 which I had dismissed because 15.Nxe6 looked on.

Apparently not.

Sep-24-17  dehanne: 28.Nxf6+ seems to squander all advantage.
Sep-25-17  fispok: I agree with everybody so far: 15.Nxe6 would cause problems as the immediate recapture with the knight would lead to Bxe6+ losing another pawn. 28Nxf6+ does pass the advantage. In my modest opinion, it would have been better a move earlier,as 27.Qxe6 prevents black from connecting three pawns together.
