Well yeah, he was a piece down. I doubt the sacrifice was sound, but with Carlsen at fast time controls practically anything is sound.

Ater 24.Bd6? Black had <24...b5 25.Be2 Bf7 26.Qc5 Qa7 27.Rb1 Qxc5+ 28.Bxc5 Kc7 ⩱ -1.44 (30 ply)> 24...Be7+? gave Magnus the edge with +0.40

Winning? I don't know. I wouldn't have won it with either color.

Nov-11-21  Luke Ripple: meme god carlson!!
