Feb-14-18  Justin796: Why Kh2 on move 30 for Magnus?
Feb-14-18  Justin796: Nevermind he cannot recapture with the pawn in front of the king..such a cramped position...does e4 work for white on move 29
Feb-14-18  barryh1976: 76. Ke5 looks like a blunder.
Feb-14-18  Granny O Doul: On 29. e4, Rxf3 and then ...Bxh3.

By move 76, White is extremely lost.

Mar-04-18  kappanator123: @Justin796 because black is threatening checkmate at g2, the queen needs to be guarding that square at all times.
