    I resigned after Re7, the rook ending is lost for White.

    Sure, I'll be glad to annotate it a little bit.  Regarding kingcrash's question, mine was the only game at the event, it was a one-on-one game, then we went out to a nice NYC steakhouse afterwards.  I got home at around 1:15am!

    You could annotate a bit your thoughts NM. If you don't do that against MC when are you?

    Mobidi, that's an interesting line and I looked at it during the game, but in my pre-game preparation I had studied the game Rublevsky-Sokolov 2010-06-10, in which that same idea had occurred, and Black was better and eventually won.  It's a good game to take a look at.  As we were analyzing after the game, Magnus confirmed that (in his opinion) Black is better in that line.

    After 10.Qe4 Nb6- was interesting and active move 11. c5 ! (you played little bit passive 11.b3 ).After 11.Bf1 cb! 12 Ba6 ba! -your position is good.

    21. Nc2 was really my first mistake.  Kxf1 isn't a mistake, White is still equal after that, according to our post-game analysis.  But if I had played 21. Nf3 instead of Nc2, White would be equal in the middlegame/late-middlegame positions as well.

    21.Nc2 looks to be your second mistake. Why didnt Magnus play Rd2 after that?
