I really like how Carlsen wins a pawn here with 33 ... ♖d7xd5!, using an Game Collection: EST's: Equal or Stronger Threats to Game Collection: Reinforce the pin!.

CARLSEN: You attack my Black e4-knight with 33 f2-f3?, I attack your <PINNED> White d4-knight with 33 ... ♖d7xd5!. (<EST>)

Jun-07-09  wanabe2000: I thought watching the game live that 33.f3 would win a piece. Carlsen, instead, wins a pawn and the game.
Jun-08-09  chillowack: <notyetagm: 33 f2-f3?> You give this move a question-mark, indicating that you think it is a mistake...do you, then, have a better move for Wang Yue here?
Jun-08-09  njchess: I think where Yue goes wrong is on move 31. Ba5?. After the inevitable Rd7, the activity of this bishop is virtually nil. By using a tempo for this move, Yue is unable to play Nd4 without losing the all important d5 pawn. Better would have been the immediate 31. Nd4.

31. Nd4 Rd7 32. Nc6 Re8 ∞ Black has a slimmest of edge because of his bishop vs. White's knight, but a draw is likely given White's pawn structure.
