    the simple looking bishop endgame in Carlsen-Duda shows how not simple endgames are!

    The bishop ending was won for Duda until he missed ...f6 on move 49 and again on move 50. Then it was a draw with best play until Carlsen's 62.Bc1 (Bd4 to block the d-pawn draws because the black bishop has to prevent white's king grabbing the b-pawn).

    17-move draw is pretty feeble by Karjakin giving he was white and he had a day off when his opponent didn't.

    Yeah, even 2700+ players look like amateurs when they face Magnus.

    Yes very nice game. Positionally sacrifice all the things!
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Also all credit to Fedoseev - he did not try to snatch a draw as white but played aggressively.

    According to the commentators Karjakin forgot the move order. He should play Rd1 first and then swap knights - by taking first he allows 11...Bd7, rather than transposing to the 10.Rd1 line, when White has nothing better than taking the repetition.
