A Horse Named Stranger Posted September 27, 2019 Share Posted September 27, 2019 And that's it. MVL correctly assessed that his best chance to survive this is trades. However 44...Rf5?? was just a horrible howler (in a much worse position), as it simply dropped the rook after 45.Qxf5 and black resigned. Anyway, Max lucked out against Lev in the play offs anyway. Gratz to Radja, first candidates in a while. Last one he played was the one Carlsen refused to play (due to his dislike for the k.o. modus) with Sascha as his eleventh hour replacement. Must have been the one Gelfand won in the end. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
