Kibitzer's Corner
May-18-04  Whitehat1963: Good game full of lengthy exchanges.
Feb-04-05  patzer2: Hansen's 33...Qg4+! initiates a deep pin and deflection combination.
May-12-05  laskerdog: With 41.Rxg7,young Magnus tried some hanky-panky, but Hansen didn't grab the bait.
Sep-18-12  vinidivici: is the sudden 19.Bxd7 bad?
Sep-18-12  Shams: <vini> I think 19.Bxd7 Nxg4! is tough to meet.

  fredthebear: The queen check and fork of a loose piece is a game winner. She is devastating on an open board.
Sep-18-19  sfm: LOL, instead of resigning, Carlsen shows his sense of humor with the last move.

Everything is hopeless of course, like 41.Nb5,Qf1+ 42.Rf1,Qf3+ Black pics up everything on the queens wing, even the knight is doomed.

Difficult game.
