"Honestly, during the game I didn't expect more than 25 moves would be made," Svidler said after his drawn but extremely uncomfortable encounter against Carlsen. 


24...Rfxf4? Easy win was by side 24...Ncxe3 25.fxe3 Nf2+ 26.Kg2 Nh3.
Carlsen said he didn't hurry up and considered his choice of taking on f4 as professional. "I am very disappointed," he added.  
25.Bxf4 Nxf2+ 26.Kg2 Rxe2 27.Kf1 Ne4

28.Rxg7+! Kf8 Black could take the rook 28...Kxg7 and avoid perpetual check: 29.Qd7+ Qf7 30.Qg4+ Qg6 31.Qd7+ Kh8 32.Qc8+ Qg8 33.Qxg8+ Kxg8 34.Kxe2 Nxc3+ 35.Kd3 Nxb1 36.Bxc7. White still needs an accurate play to draw in the endgame. 
29.Kxe2 Nxc3+ 30.Kf2 Nxb5 31.Rbg1 Nc3 32.Rxc7 Ne4+ 33.Ke1 Nc5 34.Rc8+ Kf7 35.Rc7+ Kf8 36.Rc8+ Kf7 37.Rc7+ Kf8 1/2

"Dear God, I don't really understand how I managed to save this game," Svidler shook his head. Meanwhile, Magnus in his commentary to one of the Norwegian TV Channel's noted that he doesn't deserve winning the competition.
