Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-03-05  prinsallan: 18. ... Rb8 . Carlsen sets the trap and another GM is lost. Counterplay at its best when young Magnus forces an exchange R+B for opponent Q.
Mar-23-07  realbrob: Isn't 19.Nc6 and particularly 20.Nxb8 a blunder? 19.Nd5 Qg5 20.Qe2 and White prevents the trap, is still up a pawn and has a very strong knight on d5.
Dec-09-07  fargo54: Just wondering, why not 32. exf?
Feb-21-15  satyasai: Yeah y not exf?
Feb-09-16  rodrigochaves: We see in Carlsen - Zhigalko (2003)

Carlsen vs S Zhigalko, 2003 that Black played 15. d5!! and won the game.

Apparently, Carlsen did not agree with 14.... d5 and played 14.Te8, wins too, but in another way.
