|Carlsen made it all await absurdly simple|
|Grischuk vanquish himself|
True, Grischuk is a marvellous blitz thespian as well as he pulled out around pretty useful moves nether extreme fourth dimension pressure level which mightiness convey frightened the pants off a thespian below his level, but trying such a hackneyed psychological play tricks against Carlsen is precisely bonkers.
The game started amongst a sideline of the Berlin Ruy Lopez which Grischuk had defended unsuccessfully against Karjakin inwards a Moscow rapidplay game terminal month, but Carlsen (who would live on fully aware of that) diverged first. He nursed a slight border whilst Grischuk agonised over his moves as well as dug a big hole for himself. It was a proficient game for knights rather than bishops every bit Carlsen laid upwardly his horses on the dark a-pawn as well as locked the dark clerics upwardly inwards a rather unsuccessful dorsum rate conclave.
If you lot are looking for where Black went wrong, the fantabulous official press release has a big clue: "An of import 2nd was 17…f5, a motion disliked past times Carlsen. 'I missed a lot of things amongst this move. I completely overestimated my position. I silent intend Black is fine but [during the game] I idea Black was better,' said Grischuk.
Grischuk eventually conjured upwardly around tactics which mightiness good convey felled a lesser human but Carlsen defused all the tricks as well as won around material, making it all await absurdly easy. But, every bit I said at the top, this 1 was to a greater extent than close Grischuk's bad tactics than anything Magnus did.
