    Magnus wins a classical game with the black pieces? Still anesthesia? ;-) But anyway, many thanks to Agadmator for showing and analyzing this nice game! I would say, a typical win for Magnus, playing a perfect endgame and pushing slight little advantages to victory...

    Where did Fabi go wrong? Fabi's problem is everyone's problem playing against Magnus. He beats them before the game starts. Magnus' genius is in his psychological mastery over his opponent.

    I think Fabi went wrong insisting on the early queen trade. Magnus is known for his endgame skills and he traded in a way that allowed his king side pawn structure to get messed up which I think probably led to the the sacrificed pawn and from there it all went down hill.

  34. mast1ck

    mast1ckΠριν 7 ημέρες

    playing c4 before double up the rooks on the c file is the mistake because carlsen was controlling this square with 3 pieces so fabi just lost a pawn

  35. Jaguar Bog

    Jaguar BogΠριν 7 ημέρες

    probably pushing c5 without putting a rook behind it was the mistake, the c pawn becomes a target and fabi eventually gives it up. Also creates an isolated a pawn, and makes 4 pawn islands. I have no idea why he played it straight away.

    It really seems like Caruana was relying heavily on plans of having a past A pawn, even at the cost of pretty much all of his kingside pawns, I genuinely don't know why he thought that would work out.

    Bro glad you are back and healthy. But I gotta be honest: your time away allowed me to explore some other channels and by contrast your analysis is super weak, bro. It's not a language problem, as your english is excellent. It is a chess problem. You rarely say anything that truly explains the position and the motivation of the players. I'm sorry bro. You've played a wonderful part in my chess development, but someone has to say it. I honestly say this because you are taking up time and audience from people who really can do this, better, leading to better "vast knowledge" for all of us. I'm sorry
