Kb6 27. Rxb7+ {At this point, Inarkiev played the illegal
27…Ne3+. Carlsen might have won instantly by claiming the
illegal move, but instead he instinctively moved his king out
of danger with 28.Kd3. At this point, Inarkiev stopped the
clocks and claimed victory on the basis that Carlsen made an
illegal move. The initial arbiter at first awarded Inarkiev
the win, but Carlsen alerted the chief arbiter, who overruled
the first arbiter, and gave Inarkiev the option of resuming
the game from the position arising after Carlsen’s
28.Kd3. Inarkiev refused to play and Carlsen was awarded the
win. Inarkiev appealed the chief arbiter’s decision, but his
claim was rejected by the appeal board and Carlsen’s win
stood. } 1-0
