Stavanger: only Norwegians won in Round 5

"I got a clearly better endgame and playing it with white was a pure pleasure," Karjakin told us after his winning encounter against Wang Hao. Something similar in meaning was said by Magnus Carlsen after defeating Karjakin. The difference was, however, that the battle in Karjakin - Carlsen didn't really reach the endgame. Noteworthy is that much like in yesterday's clash between Aronian and Karjakin the queen and bishop combination on a8-h1 diagonal had the decisive meaning for the outcome of the game.

KARJAKIN - CARLSEN

Carlsen agreed that White got a promising position after the endgame.
26.Qb2 Magnus expected Sergey to play 26.bxc5 Qxc5 27.Qb2 after which he was planning to play for a draw 27...Bc4 28.Bxc4 Qxc4 29.Bxe5. "Three against four" on one flank is far not a guarantee for the win.
26...c4 27.Ba4 Re6 28.Nxe5 Bb7 29.Bc2?! White bishop should have continued its way forward: 29.Bb5! But now...
29...Rae8!
There's the disadvantage of placing the bishop on с2. Black won an important tempo by using the e8-square.
30.f4 Bd6

31.Kh2? Nh5! 32.g3 f6 33.Ng6 Apparently, the game was decided here. White is not yet losing but the initiative including the psychological one has definitely moved to the Norwegian. As Carlsen said he didn't get white's 31st and 33rd moves. Instead of the quick (Magnus noted that Sergey made this move too fast) 33.Ng6 better was, in Carlsen's mind, to play 33.Rxd6 Rxd6 34.Nxc4. Houdini, however, is sceptical about this idea.
33...Nxf4 34.Rxd6 Nxg6 35.Rxe6 Rxe6 36.Bd4 f5

37.e5? It's practically impossible to escape after this mistake. More chances to resist gave 37.Qc3 .
37...Nxe5 38.Bxe5 Qc6 39.Rg1? Now starts that "pleasure" of  finishing off which could be delayed by playing 39.Be4.
39...Qd5 40.Bxf5 Rxe5 41.Bg4 h5 42.Bd1 c3 43.Qf2 Rf5 44.Qe3 Qf7 45.g4 Re5 46.Qd4 Qc7 0-1

Another Norwegian Jon Ludvig Hammer beat Wang Hao of China.
