Sep-22-22  aporia: What makes it incredible that Ivanchuk missed 41. ... Qd2+ (42. Kf3 Qe3+ 43. Re3 Qxf1) is the fact that just two days earlier Carlsen missed an almost identical opportunity against Ivanchuk: fork the Rook and King immediately after promoting with 55. ... Qb3+.

  nizmo11: The winning line goes 41...♕c2+ 42.♔f3 ♕b1! 43.♘e3 (43.♘d2 ♕d3+) ♕h1+ 44.♘g2 ♕f1+, but 43...♕b1 was not so easy to spot.
Sep-22-22  aporia: oops: 41. ... Qc2+ (42. Kf3 Qd3+ 43. Re3 Qxf1)
Sep-22-22  aporia: I saw the line nizmo11 mentions in computer analysis, but surely the one I listed is easy enough to spot.
Sep-22-22  aporia: Oh, I see that I overlooked the simple 43. Ne3. So my idea was bad indeed.
