  beenthere240: I suspect that Carlsen was just following up on his 20. Rxe7 sac which he had probably calculated to win the queen while blowing open the position. In a regular game I imagine he would see that 21. Bg4+ is an instant killer since it forces black to block his escape square at d7.

Yes, 21 ♗f3-g4+! forces a killing <SELF-BLOCK> of the d7-flight square of the Black c8-king.
