Thus far, Kasparov had not been too happy with his protege's position, but after Black's last two moves, he perked up noticeably and predicted that now White would win. 32.Qg4 b5 33.Bxd4 exd4 34.Rxd4 Qe5 35.Qd7+ Kc5 36.Qa7+ This reptition was predicted by Kasparov a few moves earlier - "to give yourself an extra minute on the clock!". Both players were very short of time by this stage. 36...Kc6 37.Qd7+ Kc5 38.Rf4?! [Here, although not having a computer to hand, Kasparov instantly predicted 38.Rd1 which your engine will confirm is indeed winning. He was aghast when Carlsen instead played the text.] 38...Qxb2? [Kasparov's misery did not last long. 38...Kb6! was Black's only hope.] 39.Rf5+ Kb4 40.Qxb5+ Kc3 41.Rf3+ 1-0
