Carlsen v Bu FIDE World Cup 2017 - Why is this black's win?

  • #1

    I'm not a master rated player by any stretch of the imagination... but I do not see how black is "winning" this game:

    Can't white win with a capture of the rook by the knight, and then a rook-king endgame verses the bishop-king?

    If the knight captures the rook, the h pawn is unstopable. If 37.. CxG1 h2 38 ... h1

    Ra1 couldn't do anything for carlsen.. just he watch the losing game..

    I showed this game to a club I go to every Sunday, the unstoppable pawn was pointed out.

    What a nice move!

    Yeah... I agree...

    Not only is the h-pawn unstoppable but white can't save his knight either.

    This game makes me worried to play h3 as white in the opening.
