Sergey Karjakin told about his victory over Levon Aronian in Stavanger

GM Sergey Karjakin gained his fourth win in Stavanger. This time he defeated Levon Aronian of Armenia.

Stavanger, Supreme Masters 2013, Round 4

Queen's Indian Defence
1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 b6 4.g3 Ba6 5.b3 Bb4+ 6.Bd2 Be7 7.Nc3 0-0 8.Bg2 c6 9.e4 d5 10.exd5 cxd5 11.Ne5 Bb7 12.0-0 Nc6 13.Bf4 Na5 14.Rc1 Ba3 15.Rb1 Bb4 16.Na4 Ne4 17.a3 Be7

18.cxd5 18.Qd3 f6 19.Ng4 Re8 took place three days ago in Hammer - Karjakin encounter. "White's choice of the opening wasn't really ambitious," Sergey recalls. "My opponent tried to improve my recent encounter against Leko by playing 16.Na4; in that game white played 16.Ne2. However, after only few moves it was clear that I was doing completely okay...", Karjakin commented on his game against Hammer.
Karjakin, "Today Levon improved my game against Hammer with the continuation which just suggested itself -
18.cxd5, however, he started playing extremely inaccurately already in several moves...  
18...exd5 19.b4 Nc6 20.Rc1 Rc8 21.Bh3 f5 22.f3 Not a necessary move at all. 
22...Nd6 23.Qd3 Nxe5 24.dxe5 Rxc1

25.Bxc1? White should have taken with the rook: 25.Rхc1 Nc4 26.Bхf5. Here Black has several options. I thought Black has 26...g5, but it's impossible because of 27.Bхh7+ Kh8 28.Qg6 gхf4 29.Bg8!! Well, I would prefer to think that I wouldn't miss that blow... In this line Levon didn't like 26...Bg5, 26...Kh8 is also interesting. Objectively Black should be okay, but it's clear that Levon had to choose this continuation.
25...Nc4 26.f4? Another mistake. Now White is having big problems!

27.Nc3? The lesser of two evils was 27.Nb2 with an uncomfortable play. And now I had a nice choice."
At the press conference Sergey explained that 27.Nc5 wasn't a good idea because of 27...Bxc5+ 28.bxc5 d4 29.Bxf5 Qd5, and here GM suggested the following continuation as winning one 29...Rxf5? 30.Qxf5 Qd5, White however, has a chance to escape: 31.c6! Bxc6 32.Qc8+ Kf7 33.Qc7+! Instead of this move Karjakin calculated 33.e6+? Kg6 34.f5+ Kh5, and the king escapes. It wouldn't be able to do so in case of the check: 33...Kg6?? 34.f5+ Kh5 35.Rf3!!, and now white wins: 35...Qd7 (35...Qxf3 36.Qf7+ Kg4 37.Qxg7+ Kxf5 38.Qf6+ Ke4 39.Qxc6+) 36.Rf4.
Thus, enough was simple 29...Qd5 with a win instead of 29...Rxf5?

Karjakin: "Maybe 27...d4 was stronger, but after the move I have played White was also experiencing problems.
28.Rf2 d4 29.Ne2 Rd8 30.Qxf5 d3 31.Qe6+ Kf8 32.Qf5+
The last chance for white was 32.Qхb6, but objectively Black should still be winning that endgame. After the check on f5 I managed to find a strong idea:

32...Ke8 And here it was important to consider 33...Rd6! on 33.e6
33.Qxh7 d2 was stronger than dхe2. White's position is just hopeless."
34.Bxd2 Rxd2 35.e6 Rd1+ 36.Bf1 Qxe6 37.Qh5+ Kf8 38.Nc3 Qc6 0-1

Sergey Karjakin was welcomed with an applause in the press center. Levon Aronian politely asked not to participate in the press conference. Karjakin was asked what is a secret of his success, "No secret, I just come and play," Russian GM replied. He then added that his girlfriend is in Stavanger, "Maybe you will invite her for an interview?" In Round 5 Sergey is facing Magnus Carlsen, "Tomorrow I just want to show a good game. Of course, the result is also important but first of all I want to play a good chess."
