Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-14-10  Marmot PFL: 14 Kg2 is not too common and this sac (which looks prepared) seems to refute it. 35 Bg5 gives white some chance to survive but hard to find that blindfold.
Mar-14-10  kingsindian2006: it would be hard to see move 35 even without blindfold....:) i only kid
Mar-14-10  Marmot PFL: 25 Bg5 :) Anyway I know many strong players like these g4 lines for white but the few times I tried them ended up much like this.
Mar-15-10  waustad: He mentioned this game:
Eljanov vs Radjabov, 2008 when talking about it after the round.
Mar-15-10  bobtheoriginal: Hope Mr Kasparov will influence Carlsen to play more King's Indian Defences.
Mar-15-10  Rolfo: waustad, Magnus surely did some improvements
Mar-15-10  boowillo: "Playing against Magnus after he has lost a game is never pleasant," said his father Henrik Carlsen.
Mar-15-10  Blaise99a: From Calsen's blog yesterday, "After he missed a chance to complicate the position on the 25th move, it was over, and he resigned on the 28th move. A very enjoyable win, not least because I spent less than 10 minutes on the clock for the entire game."

Ten minutes well spent, young man!

Mar-25-10  DiscoJew: What a brutal pounding by black.
Apr-23-10  sarah wayne: 14.a4 should be played according to
John Nunn.
Sep-04-10  notyetagm: New In Chess 2010/3

Jun-02-15  ToTheDeath: 10 minutes and blindfolded, incredible. Great play all the way through.
