Wijk aan Zee: Magnus Carlsen outplayed Sergey Karjakin "without an opening"     

Top-seed Magnus Carlsen continues amazing in Tata Steel by playing "without openings." In the 8th round game against Sergey Karjakin Norwegian got out of the books from the very beginning: 1.Nf3 Nf6 2.g3 d5 3.Bg2 c6 4.0-0 Bg4 5.c4 e6 6.d3 Nbd7 7.cxd5 exd5 8.Qc2.

This is what he said after the game:

"This was an interesting game: some good moves, good ideas, interesting ideas, bad moves, half moves, waiting moves and so on. I thought I was a little bit better at first, then it was equal [...] I played 39.b3 and there still was nothing, but somehow he allowed something. I think 42...Kf8 looks natural, but at least combined with  43...Nc3 it doesn't work tactically. The opposite color bishop ending is always going to be very difficult for him. I thought  67.g4 was the best try, but I'm not sure whether it's winning."


The best try mentioned by Magnus took place here: 67.g4! hxg4 68.h5. Sergey answered with 68...Rh1? and later got outplayed.
It turnes out there still was a chance for holding the game; in order to do so Sergey had to find some incredible moves being in a time trouble: 68...gxh5! 69.f5 h4 70.f6+

70...Kg6!! Black sacrifices bishop, but this is not the end.
71.Rxf8 Kf5!! The only move. Giving perpetual immediately is impossible: 71...Rb2+ 72.Ke1 Rb1+ 73.Kd2 Rb2+ 74.Kc1 Rb7 75.Rxf7! Rxf7 76.e6! g3! 77.exf7 g2 78.f8Q g1Q+ 79.Kb2, and White should win.
72.Rh8 Rb2+ here comes the draw. Either White agrees with the perpetual check, or takes more difficult way to come to the peaceful result: 73.Ke1 Rb1+ 74.Kd2 Kxe5 75.Rxh4 g3 76.Rh5+ Kxf6 77.Bd5 Rb2+ 78.Ke1 g2 79.Bxg2 Rxg2 80.Rxc5.

Although the last part of the game also seems quite diverse, preliminary analysis doesn't show any specific ways of holding it. 69.hxg6 fxg6 70.Re6 Kh6 71.Bd5 Rh2+ 72.Kg3 Rh3+ 73.Kxg4 Rxd3 74.f5 Re3 75.Rxg6+ Kh7 76.Bg8+ Kh8 77.Kf4 Rc3 78.f6 d3 79.Ke3 c4 80.Be6 Kh7 81.Bf5 Rc2 82.Rg2+ Kh6 83.Rxc2 dxc2 84.Bxc2 Kg5 85.Kd4 Ba3 86.Kxc4 Bb2 87.Kd5 Kf4 88.f7 Ba3 89.e6 Kg5 90.Kc6 Kf6 91.Kd7 Kg7 92.e7 1-0

Thus, Magnus Carlsen grabs the sole lead again having 6/8. Tomorrow the participants have a rest day.
