  An Englishman: Good Morning: White does have a trap available to help in the defense--20...h5; 21.Bf3,h4; 22.Bg2. Black will have a tough time penetrating without the second Rook.

  vonKrolock: Now h6-h5 first, to answer Bxg4 with Pawn capture; and then 0-0-0

  vonKrolock: ...but then Be2 (or Bf3) forces the capture: take take, h5-h4, Nf1 etc
Jun-29-19  BOSTER: But white is not obligated to play Bxg4.If then h4 , Nf1.

  An Englishman: Good Morning: And we now have our first opportunity for a perpetual--22.Qf3,h5; 23.Qg2,Qg4; 24.Qf3,Qh3 et cetera.

  Mateo: 22.Qf3 could be aiming for Qf5+ to trade another one of the Black attacking pieces.
Jun-29-19  BOSTER: Move Ne7 to protect from Q f5+.
Jun-29-19  Ulhumbrus: It may be that Black's h pawn comes to h4 too quickly for either 22 b4 or even 22 d4 to work. 22 Qf3 prepares Qg2 and may lead to a draw.

  vonKrolock: 22...Ne7,and if Qf6, then Rdg8 etc!?

  vonKrolock: ... then Nf1, Ng6 add more wood to the fire. Karjakin Rh8 looks slower.

  vonKrolock: <Mateo> in this line a Ne7 in the end isn't winning that Pawn anyway?!

  whiteshark: I think that mass trade-offs are white's road to save the game, e.g. <24... Ne7 25. Nf5 Nxf5 26. Qxf5+ Qxf5 27. exf5 <h4 28. Kg2 hxg3 29. fxg3>> which is a ♖♖ endgame

  An Englishman: Good Morning: 24...h4; 25.Qf5+,Qxf5; 26.Nxf5 won't win the h-pawn because of the pin, but does weaken Black's attack. Looking at 24...Ne7.

  vonKrolock: d3-d4 to prevent the Kd7, Ne7 idea; then Black can play h4-h3, but this is not looking decisive
Jun-29-19  Ulhumbrus: My present guess is a draw. Perhaps White can't play for more after the threat of ...h5 and ..h4 becomes too strong.

  vonKrolock: After the liquidations in g3, it's symmetric and drawish.
Jun-29-19  Ajahg: Looks drawiish

  An Englishman: Good Morning: This game has calmed down completely. Guessing that the players will find a way to end with a perpetual soon.

  An Englishman: Good Morning: Any chance for a second game? Carlsen-Mamedyarov looks crazy.

  Gypsy: But petered into a draw as well.
All draws in the round.
Jun-29-19  devere: Karjakin missed 24... Ne7! 25. Qf6 Rhg8! 26. Nf5 Nxf5 27. Qxf5+ Qxf5 28. exf5 Rg5 and Black wins a pawn. If 26.Ng2 Rg5!! 27.Qxe7 h4 Black has a winning attack.
