Nov-21-08  Xeroxx: Woo! What an awesome game :__D
Nov-21-08  Davolni: nice game indeed by Carlsen!!!
Nov-21-08  Jim Bartle: Oh, man, I have no clue from move 15 to move 35 or so.
Nov-22-08  Philidor: <KKDEREK> Yes, but he's still youthfully unstable. When matured a bit, he'll rule the world!
Nov-22-08  DeltaHawk: Wow, a lot of complicated moves here.
Nov-22-08  DeltaHawk: how do you force navara into losing?
Nov-22-08  OneArmedScissor: Would you please give us an analysis of this game, Eyal? :)
Nov-24-08  veerar: 13....Nb8,seems better,and is one of usual methods.
Nov-26-08  Ulhumbrus: An alternative to 18...Nc3 is 18...Nb6 playing to maintain the centre by ...c6 before doing anything else.
Nov-26-08  veigaman: Fantastic game by carlsen, nice to play through!
Nov-26-08  veigaman: <kkderek> agree with you my chessmate. Moreover, i think that this is one of the best game played by magnus this year, a petit game!
Nov-27-08  Ulhumbrus: For fifteen moves in succession following the exchange sacrifice 21 Rxe4!! Carlsen has the initiative ( or Black on the defensive) and doesn't let it go. 32 Rxc7 traps Black's QB. On 32...Ba8 White wins the B by 33 Rd8+ Kh7 34 Bg8+ Kh8 35 Bd5+ attacking the B a second time. On 32...Ba6 Black's QB gets pinned after 33 Ra7 and 36 Nb4 wins it.
