  suenteus po 147: A promising start. This one seems to be all about pawn demolition after the queen's are off.

  Mateo: Carlsen got the best of it most of the time, but he made an unacurracy which should have allowed Stokke to reach a drawish position. Stokke missed the point, and Carlsen never gave him a second chance. The all game was very interesting.
