Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-19-10  carlsen o: way not 23)Q:b4 ??
Apr-19-10  Gilmoy: <carlsen o: 23)Q:b4> Bxd4 and White has <two en prise> (Qb4, Bf3), and they can't defend each other in 1 move. So Black steals another pawn, and gets his piece back.
Apr-19-10  Justawoodpusher: <Gilmoy> You sure meant 23...♗xe4, but of course correct explanation.
Apr-19-10  SeikenHMC: Actually I like 23. Qb4, with the following line:

23. Qb4 Bxe4
24. Qxb8 Rxb8
25. Nxe4

giving up the queen for a rook, bishop, and knight.

Mar-02-12  screwdriver: yeah, I kind of like what you're saying SeikenHMC. Seems reasonable if your analysis is correct.
May-08-15  RKnight: Carlsen could have administered the coup de grace with 35. Qe2+ Kh1, 36. Nf2+. But the weaker 35. Nf2 sufficed to force resignation, so it was good enough.
