Nanjing round 4

Gashimov almost got him!

Carlsen skated on thin ice, but after move 60 he tired his opponent enough to get away with a draw.

Anand as Black, came a cropper against Bacrot. But whatever line was tried stayed a secret.

On move 30.Ke1 Black played Rxb2, where almost any other move would have pleased the engines better.

But, more importantly:

If Anand had played 29....e5, things would have taken a very different turn indeed.
He didn't move his -e-pawn until move 44 and by that time the effect had worn off.
