  An Englishman: Good Morning: 31.Rd7 and 32.Bd1 were great maneuvers, snuffing Black's counterplay and simultaneously enabling future assaults on a lot of weak Black pawns. If Carlsen can also avoid mistakes and snuff out You Yangyi's King side demonstration, this game could end soon.
Jun-13-19  vonKrolock: * condemnation, sorry
Jun-13-19  Ulhumbrus: White's rook is far more active than Black's rook and White's king defends d4 whereas Black's king does not defend c6. My present guess is that Carlsen will win.
Jun-13-19  LameJokes: Yu should resign and eat Norwegian saloman for dinner.

  OhioChessFan: So, how do you not play cxb2?
Jun-13-19  beenthere240: Will Carlsen find c6?

  Check It Out: 41...a4. Now carlsen can keep the black bishop from getting to e4, covering the c7 white passed pawn square, with 42.Rd5+

  Check It Out: E5, that is.
Jun-13-19  beenthere240: The black bishop will have a very hard time getting to e4. Since it's a white square. ;-)

  Check It Out: Yeah, yeah :)

All roads lead to stavanger here, resignation coming soon.

Jun-13-19  LameJokes:

Yu resigned. Congrats Magnus. He has no peers among his equals on this side of the north pole.

Jun-13-19  Boomie: Long ago in a galaxy far, far away, black had to play Rd8 at all costs. The attack on d4 neutralizes any material loss.
Jun-13-19  Ulhumbrus: On 44...Rc1 45 Rd5+ Kxg4 46 Rc5 Black's a pawn has been stopped while White's c pawn can't be. White's king stops Black's a pawn while Black's king does nothing to stop White's c pawn.
Jun-13-19  beenthere240: Yangyi has once consolation -- he won't have to have his butt kicked in Armageddon!

  An Englishman: Good Morning: Carlsen now has 42 wins in 2019 and 4 losses (all in rapid/blitz). OK, that's just scary.

  chancho: Carlsen's endgame technique was flawless.
Jun-13-19  bamaexpert: Looks like Carlsen can win this tournament by a landslide. Way to go organizers, with your armageddon bull****, to ensure it! He would most likely have won it with classical time controls only, but you weren't taking any chances, were you?

Yes, we love with fond devotion
This our land that looms
Rugged, storm-scared o'er the ocean,
With her thousand homes.
Love her, in our love recalling
Those who gave us birth.
And old tales which night, in falling
Bring as dreams to earth.
And old tales which night, in falling
Bring as dreams, as dreams to earth.
Norse man, whatsoe'er thy station,
Thank thy God, Whose power
Willed and wrought the land's salvation
In her darkest hour.
All our mothers sought with weeping
And our sires in fight,
God has fashioned, in His keeping
Till we gained our right.
God has fashioned, in His keeping
Till we gained, we gained our right.
Yes, we love with fond devotion
This our land that looms
Rugged, storm-scared o'er the ocean,
With her thousand homes.
And, as warrior sires have made her
Wealth and fame increase,
At the call we too will aid her,
Armed to guard her peace.
At the call we too will aid her,
Armed to guard, to guard her peace.

  chancho: Is that seven straight tournament wins counting the World Blitz last year?

Carlsen is having a helluva run thus far.

WC Magnus Carlsen is basically the <1972 Miami Dolphins> thus far...

Jun-13-19  AdolfoAugusto: The Champ is a monsta! (And makes super GMs act like little childen: run scared and cry). He sure didn't look miserable -As he did against Ding-

  MissScarlett: In some inner sanctum of the Chinese Communist Party HQ in Beijing, the orders are already being prepared to <Get Carlsen!>. Champ, sleep with one eye open or hire <John Wick> as a second.
Jun-13-19  ptrckmackay: Do you know Carlsen's Armageddon record in OTB tournaments?
Jun-13-19  AdolfoAugusto: Will Caruana (a e4 player) dare to play and face Carlsen trusted Sveshnikov? Or will he try to avoid it prefering to play against a Nimzo or even Gruenfeld?
