Jul-19-21  Diana Fernanda: No comment?, poor year of Caruana. We want to see new people

  saffuna: A back-and-forth game, one having the advantage then the other, then back.

Analysts say 32...Nd6 would have maintained the advantage.

I thought Caruana could hold on. Looks like 41. Qc4 was an error, but it still looked difficult for black to convert the win.

  saffuna: Daniel King analysis:

He says Caruana now drops below 2800.

  fredthebear: Another video, World #2 vs #124:
Jul-20-21  Ulhumbrus: The move 12...Ndf6 removes the N from the queen side and leaves the other knight misplaced. This suggests switching the attack to the queen side by 13 Rb1

Two differences between this game and the game Botvinnik vs Keres, 1952 which we can assume that Caruana knows about are that in that game Keres does not play ..Nh5 to exchange the dark squared bishops and in this game Black answers the move f3 with ...c5. Black's isolated d pawn matters less if White has in return a backward e pawn.

Jul-20-21  virginmind: At first I thought the purpose of allowing 27.Bxf1 was 28.gxf6, but I was considering black retreats the bishop to b5 (so white can continue with Nxd5 and some strong attack). Fritz shows me black simply retreats the bishop to c4 instead, so d5 cannot be captured. Still, like that, white has an equal game - but probably with difficult to calculate single lines.
Jul-20-21  Saniyat24: I don't get why Caruana moved his queen on b2 in move 50...!

  saffuna: Jumabayev: "On move 30 he offered a draw, but I thought I was already much better and I refused it..."

Draw offers really should be official and noted on the scoresheet.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Troller: Draw offers are noted as (=) on the scoresheet. But there is no pgn code for this I guess.

  MissScarlett: <Draw offers are noted as (=) on the scoresheet.>

I'm not aware of this practice.

Jul-20-21  Z4all: It's a FIDE rule, but lacking in the original PGN standard.

See FIDE rule 8.1.5:

PGN should just add draw offered by [White|♗lack] after move.

(More interesting, though unwanted, automagic by Daniel just above)

Jul-20-21  Z4all: add ... -> add comment { draw offered by [White|Black] }

  Troller: I think the rule has been there for quite some time. Of course, it always depends on the rules a certain tournament is played under; probably not all national federations have this as part of their rule book. I have noted draw offers at least since 2007 when I started playing again and IIRC also during the nineties.

In this particular game the FIDE rules would apply of course, so the draw offer is presumed present on the score sheets.

Another matter is that pgns are often generated from the DGT boards nowadays so these should have a button for "draw offer" installed to make it smooth. That sounds like a cheap and easy solution...
