A Horse Named Stranger Posted November 13, 2018 Share Posted November 13, 2018 Ok, game three was pretty uneventful and Team Fabiano has indeed patched that hole from game 1. Game 4 we finally have 1.c4 and a proper English. I will switch on the live commentary shortly, but I am not sure what the point of Carlsen's Re1 was. Usually in those kind of positions you put your rooks on the c- and d-file or one rook on the b-file to get that push b5 going (ide exchange pawns on the queen side, leave black with an isolated pawn there and eventually win that pawn. So Re1 does very little in that respect. The only thing I can somehow imagine might be that Carlsen thinks of pushing f4 at some point, but I am not sure about this idea.
