This is going to depend highly on the individual and how fast they are able to learn something.

Jun-04-16  Sergash: Kyrre Indrebo is a Norvegian player born in 1978, so he was probably 23 years old when he played the actual game. Early 2016, his FIDE rating is 2058 and he never achieved any official title.

Carlsen was 10 years old and rated 2084 at that time.

It seems it was the first time Carlsen was playing against the Duch Defense.

I checked the game with the program Komodo 9.42 64 bits.

<8...Ng4?!> This move is not to be commended. Instead, there is 8...dxe5 9.Ba3 Qxd1 10.Rxd1 Re8 = Ragik Tavadian (2260) vs. Semon Palatnik (2480), URSS Championship 1983 is Irkutsk, 0-1.

<9...Nc6N 10.Nc3 Ngxe5 11.Nxe5 Bxe5 12.Rc1 > This is the theoritical novelty of the game, but the already known move is better: 9...Nxe5! (Gabor Kovacs vs. Zsolt Jozsef Szabo (2225), Hongary Championship Under 18 1995 in Paks, draw) 10.Nxe5! Bxe5 11.Nd2

<14.c5?!> 14.e3! fxg3 (or 14...fxe3 15.Nxe3 ) 15.hxg3

<14...dxc5?? 15.Bxc5 > Losing move. 14...Bg4!

Stonger for White was 15.Rxc5! .

<17...Bxc5?! 18.Rxc5 > The best chance was 17...Rf7 18.Qh5 Bf5 /

<19...g4? 20.Rd1!> 19...h6 is better.

<22.Rc4?! Qe5!> Better is 22.Rc1!

<23.Rxc6?! Qxc3 24.Rxc3 c6> Carlsen is making his task of winning more complicated. 23.Rc1 Qxc3 24.R1xc3!

<28.Bxb7?!> Stronger is 28.Rxb7! Kh6 29.Rf7! Bg6 30.Bxa8 Rxd4 31.Rxh7+! Bxh7 32.exd4 .

The rest of the game is self explanatory.
