Hi Guys.  
I would like to share some tricks from the game Carlsen - Aronian from Zurich Chess Challenge round 2. 

The game was very calm. But there were some interesting moments mentioned on press conference.
Here is the whole game. Take a look at it at first.  


Why do you think Aronian didnt played 17... Nd7 ?

It seems so natural to bring the Knight to c5 and then to b3 .

"That's not a cheap thats a beautiful trick" - Carlsen said during press conference.
Why didnt black played 22... f5? Wasnt that the way to get an advantage? 

Thank you for your attention
