Did Firouzja lost on time to Carlsen ?
Chessbase article says Firouzja resigned.
Position is lost, indeed !

Round 11. Firouzja lost to Anand. Playing against elites for first times is not easy.


Castle queenside was played. But Rd1 might have been an alternative. White king may go to e2 or f2 if required.


White's bishop on b2 is not commanding the long diagonal. But B@f4 is a blocker(f3) and attacker(h2). Bc1 my be better.


Nd6+ was played. Unfortunately wrong placement of white's king shows it here. If Ka2 Ba4 might be played. White can not play Kb3-a4(Queen side majority pushing) anymore.
