Jun-19-12  darshandatta: A great positional masterpiece.
Jun-19-12  SimonWebbsTiger: a game I always think of when I see the delayed exchange, like yesterday in the aforementioned Carlsen game.
Jun-19-12  darshandatta: I wonder in Carlsen knew about this one. He also used the positional ideas that Keres applied
Jun-19-12  SimonWebbsTiger: @<darshandatta>

I would be mightily surprised if Magnus didn't look at this game. Nobody becomes nr 1 without hard work and study to augment their natural skills.

Oct-08-16  zydeco: Impressive. Black's the only one playing.
