Carlsen, Magnus (2881) - Rodriguez Vila, Andres (2437) [A04]
Four Player Rapid Knockout, Caxias do Sul (1) 2014

Notes by Boris Schipkov

1. Nf3 f5 2. d3








   
2...Nf6!?
Also interesting is 2...Nc6!? with the idea of ...e7-e5.
3. e4 d6 4. exf5 Bxf5 5. d4 Qd7 6. Nc3








   
6...g6?!
A dubious novelty. Better are 6...e6 and 6...Nc6 7. d5 (7. Bb5) 7...Nb4 8. Nd4 c6?! 9. dxc6 Nxc6 10. Nxf5 Qxf5, with a small edge to White in Shimanov, A - Pridorozhni, A, Alushta 2008. Correct is 8...Nbxd5 9. Nxd5 Nxd5 10. Qf3 Be6 11. Nxe6 Qxe6+ 12. Be2 c6 13. Qb3 O-O-O 14. c4 Nb6 15. Be3 g6, with counterplay.
7. Bd3
7. Bc4!? deserves attention.
7...Bg7 8. O-O Nc6
8...O-O!? is interesting.
9. d5 Nb4 10. Bxf5








   
10...gxf5?
A mistake. After 10...Qxf5 11. Nd4 Qh5 12. Ne6 Qxd1 13. Rxd1 Kf7 White has a small advantage, but Black can play.
11. a3!
Magnus Carlsen forces back the black knight.
11...Na6 12. Nd4!
Centralization. The knight prepares to jump to the e6-square.
12...Nc5 13. b4








   
13...Nce4?
The last mistake. Better is 13...e5 14. dxe6 Nxe6 15. Re1 Ne4 16. Nxe4 Bxd4 17. Qh5+ Kd8 18. c3 fxe4 19. cxd4, and White obtains a clear advantage due to the bad position of the black monarch.
14. Nxe4 fxe4 15. Ne6 Rg8 16. Bb2 c6 17. c4 Bh8 18. Re1 Rg6








   
19. Bxf6!
White intends to activate the queen, wins the e4-pawn and the game.
19...exf6
Or 19...Bxf6 20. Qh5 Bxa1 21. Qxh7, winning.
20. Qh5 Qf7 21. Qf5 Qg8
Black's bishop is bad, Black's king is weak.
22. g3 Kf7 23. Rxe4
White doubles the rooks on the e-file with Rae1 and attacks the black king, winning quickly.
Black resigned. 1-0
