In letter #35 of 2013, from the game #9 Anand-Carlsen, you suggest playing
from the Bishop move at f1, rather than moving the Knight which was Anand's catastrophic
move but the computer moves its Queen to e1, and thus, loses the game after
sacrificing the Queen and Bishop later on with no avail.
I believe that if the Queen moves
to d1 instead with the intention of placing itself at h5 and subsequently move
the Bishop to f5, Carlsen at the most can have a draw.
Am I right?
the position back again and placing the Queen into d1 instead of
e1 as you suggest in your letter, we found that you are 100%
Below, you can play
the game with a setup showing white moved his Bishop at f1 and black
Queen moved to d1 as you indicated.
Thank you for
