<OneArmedScissor: When the king moves, the Rook falls.>

Carlsen's 42 ... ♕f3-h5+ forces the White h2-king onto the g-file at g3, g2, or g1 for 43 ... ♕h5-g5+, <FORKING> the White g3,2,1-king and the <UNDEFENDED> White d8-rook (<LOOSE PIECES DROP OFF!>).

Aug-07-08  notyetagm: Like I've said before, I think that Magnus Carlsen is the strongest player in the world at using his queen, an ability he shows here at the tender age of 12(!).
Aug-04-15  RKnight: Carlsen missed an earlier win with the same motif. 37...Qh4+, 38.Kg1 (or Kg2), ...Qg4+ picks up the wayward rook.
