Feb-13-15  1d410: A prep wipeout by Caruana :)
Feb-13-15  Shams: Amazing how effortlessly Caruana enfeebled White's bishops. Watching the elite play blitz is such a treat.

Thanks man. I thought for a moment that White had something with 32.Qb3+ but Black can block with 32.Nc4. And then White would like to play Bg4-Be6+ but too many moves since Black is queening on f1. The rook on a2 is also poisoned for the same reason.

White wasted moves with 9.Ba3 and 10.Bb2 giving Black time to unwind
