Oct-21-10  lefthandsketch: seems like black may fianchetto his dark squared bishop...perhaps the light squared bishop will go to e6? I don't have an engine running, but black's position seems fine.
Oct-21-10  Knight13: I don't know what White's supposed to do here.
Oct-21-10  Hesam7: After 26. Bf1 Stockfish 1.9.1 recommends 26. ... Qb7 @ depth 27 with an evaluation of 0.36.
Oct-21-10  Travis Bickle: <Knight13: I don't know what White's supposed to do here.> Too bad Fischer wasn't alive doing game analysis. ; P

Carlsen has completely equalized. There is a total of 22 pieces on board (2 x 11) and you have 7 pairs that are mirror images of each other.

Oct-21-10  turbo231: There's still a lot of chess to be played.
Oct-21-10  Hesam7: <turbo231: There's still a lot of chess to be played.>

Yes now since Carlsen played carelessly (30. ... Be6?!) and White has some advantage again.

Oct-21-10  Reisswolf: ChessOK claims that Anand played 32. bxc5.
Oct-21-10  marcwordsmith: dead draw now isn't it?
Oct-21-10  marcwordsmith: oppo color bishops even!
Oct-21-10  marcwordsmith: shake hands, gentlemen
Oct-21-10  Bridgeburner: Officially drawn.
Oct-21-10  turbo231: It's a draw.
Oct-21-10  Knight13: Now after 44. Kxf2 Bf1 45. Kxf1 White is clearly better, and should win.
Oct-21-10  SugarDom: what sayin' knight13?
Oct-21-10  marcwordsmith: cg, the topalov game maybe? :-)
Oct-21-10  turbo231: Carlsen played very well. I guess he's the real deal.

  whiteshark: uh, much too late. :(
Oct-21-10  anandrulez: 28 Ra5 seems to have given up any chances for White to go ahead . Nb3 was more precise as per the comps. The evals drops from 0.3 to 0.00 after d5 and Carlsen seems to have played 30..Be6 better was Bd6 taking advantage of the weak black squares .
Oct-21-10  beenthere240: After 30...Bd6, doesn't 31. Nc5 still result in the DSB/KT exchange and an op color bishop ending?
Oct-21-10  SharpAttack: Drawnand..
Oct-22-10  chesscubes: i want to see top players play the marshall gambit it is very good and if white lacks opening theory he will have problems
Oct-22-10  Bdellovibrio: <i want to see top players play the marshall gambit it is very good and if white lacks opening theory he will have problems>

Top players don't "lack opening theory" in the Marshall - it is the intensely theoretical and inflexible nature of this opening that makes it uncommon compared to the closed variations.

Oct-31-10  ReikiMaster: 28..d5 was well timed. It was possible earlier but has more impact with white Rook off center.
