  An Englishman: Good Evening: Carlsen never seems happy unless/until he sacrifices his daily pawn, does he?
Aug-16-20  Jambow: Lasker would have been pleased...
Aug-16-20  Ulhumbrus: 20...Bf7? removes the bishop from the h3-c8 diagonal and exposes Black to the potential fork Qg4+, because the exchange 21 Nxc6! can pull the black queen out of the diagonal h3-c8 as well.

This seems an instructive mistake.

The black queen is overworked. If she has to cover the N on c6 she cannot cover the g4 square as well.
