  vonKrolock: Draw by *sic* <reputation> lol
Jan-19-19  BOSTER: White is better,but we can not see the time.
Jan-19-19  BOSTER: It looks like CG does not work.

  Sargon: <BOSTER: White is better, but we can not see the time>.

<BOSTER: It looks like CG does not work.>

Alack and alas! Woe, even...

Jan-19-19  Ulhumbrus: It may be that Carlsen saw at least one way to draw but underestimated his opponent and tried to win
Jan-19-19  BOSTER: After Rxf7+ Ke8 Rf6 , and black has big problem.
Jan-19-19  ChessHigherCat: SF says +1.2 but it looks kind of drawish because the e-pawn is lost and white can't attack the other pawns with the king on g8
Jan-19-19  BOSTER: Kg8 is better, you are right.

  whiteshark: I can smell a MC win here now that he got a 2-0 ♙ majority on the h-file.

  diceman: They're at move 49 and sesse says tablebase draw.
Jan-19-19  rafani fischer: Looks like a loss by Carlsen.
Jan-19-19  BOSTER: White need any plan to gamble.

  Diademas: <rafani fischer: Looks like a loss by Carlsen.>

Don't think so, but I guess Carlsen can look forward to the long torture he is known to give his own opponents.

Jan-19-19  BOSTER: White has to know how build the bridge.
Jan-19-19  BOSTER: Now only the draw.

  An Englishman: Good Morning: Drat--finally got here in time to see the perpetual. On a cursory glance, the 4 v. 3 endgame looks quite interesting, if like me you're a Rook ending nerd.
Jan-19-19  ChessHigherCat: Somebody should invent a comment-generating program:

This is definitely a (alternate: win, loss, draw) for (alternate: white, black).

  moronovich: <OCF :40. Rxf7+ then take 15 minutes to work out the win.>

And then take 100-200 hours to understand how Magnus kept the draw.

  keypusher: Like OCF, I was sure Black was lost at move 40, but I guess not.
Jan-19-19  beenthere240: I thought Carlsen's situation was dire, but when he began blitzing the endgame I figured he pretty much knew what he was doing.
Jan-19-19  ChessHigherCat: <vonKrolock: White actually wins a second ♙ with 40.♖xf7, but Black can win back the Pawn or force a draw by reputation>

How do you force a draw by reputation? Look boy, you know I'm the champ so you'd better settle for a draw!

Just kidding, I know you meant "repetition".

Premium Chessgames Member
  vonKrolock: <ChessHigherCat> Yes, typical spell checker's treachery - but quite witty this time...
Jan-20-19  Sally Simpson: ***

It is a good auto spell check error.

Draw by reputation. Pity we are not doing Giri Draw jokes anymore.

My classic was writing about a museum guide and how unhelpful he was.

I must has spelt museum wrong. The spell correction thingy changed it to a Muslim guide and how unhelpful he was. I caught it in time before I started an international incident.

  whiteshark: <Gruenfeld Defense: Three Knights Variation (D90) <(no result) >> huh?

It's 1/2

Mar-01-19  djvanscoy: A funny curiosity: the position after Carlsen's 56th move in this game is the same as the position after Fischer's 50th move in his 1962 game against Svetozar Gligorić at the Stokholm Interzonal (Gligoric vs Fischer, 1962). In both games White played Re6; after that, Fischer and Carlsen reached draws in different ways.

A very good game by Fedoseev.
