Jan-22-05  Calli: 19...Bb5? What an odd move. Of course GMs are supposed to know when to play weird moves. Needless to say, it does not work out in this case. I say that with 20/20 hindsight ;-)
Jan-22-05  Dick Brain: She was probably trying to get Carlsen to play 20. a4 which doesn't do so much since it allows Kosteniuk's counterplay move 20 ... Nb4.
Apr-12-06  Whitehat1963: A recent examination of the Opening of the Day. Love the way Carlsen traps the rook.
Apr-12-06  ChessConquer: I tend to ignore games that start with 1.d4 unless black wins with a Trompowsky or a King's Indian Defense.
Apr-24-09  falso contacto: not bad. tricky.
Jan-16-11  YCP: What happens if 13.. Bxa1
Jan-16-11  BLarsen1967: <YCP> Well,something like: 14.Nd6+ Kf8 15. cxd5 Qc3 16.dxe6 Nf6 17. Bxf6 gxf6 18.Qa2 - just one possibility..
