Magnus Carlsen plays Peter Svidler, and Vassily Ivanchuk plays Vladimir Kramnik in the 14th and final round of the 2013 FIDE Candidates Chess Tournament. The tournament ended with one of the most bizarre scenarios. The tournament winner will be the candidate (challenger) to Viswanathan Anand for the next World Chess Champion title.
Well after 42.Bf7+ Kf8 43.Bxg6 Kg7 44.Bxh5 Kxh6 45.Bxf3 : Black can play...Bb3, followed by ...Be5, take the b2 pawn and slowly just mop up with the extra piece. The problem is that White has no way of ever liquidating Black's last remaining pawn.
@ Almostmaster : No.
Thanks for the great coverage, chess.com!
The tournament was very exciting to follow on-line. The finish was really something.

Nice video with great explanations! Thanks
My compliments to the spoilers! What great play from both Svidler and Ivanchuck--two very dangerous players!
Both Carlsen and Kramnik pushed too much, because they didn't know how much they needed for the
first place finish. Especially Kramnik went out of his comfort zone because he had to win if Carlsen scored 0,5.
Very good analysis, especially because you didn't have much time to prepare it.
thanks man good stuff!
exiting finish one of the best tournements ever carlson waited until kramnik was losing before resigning
Very ironic for Magnus Carlsen to be down on time... against Svidler. Peter Svidler had lost a couple of his games through time in this tournament.
Vassily Ivanchuk played very actively and took down Kramnik in quite an effort.
Thanks ChessNetwork for the analysis, always appreciated and admired!
