|Nov-11-04|| ||InspiredByMorphy: Excellent game by black! The Schlieman defense is under-rated, and Sollid who is non-rated, plays it very well against a formidable opponent in this game. It looks as though Carlsen hadnt looked into this defense much. Perhaps he began to after the match. |
|Nov-11-04|| ||MoonlitKnight: Well, he was only 10 years old, I don't think he knew that much theory at the time. |
|Nov-11-04|| ||acirce: Black's play is rock-solid ;-)
But I'm not sure Magnus did so bad in the opening, it's a rather usual line, see Anand vs Korchnoi, 1991
The deviation 8.Bg5 doesn't seem much better or worse than anything else.
Why not 22.Bh5 winning the exchange?
25.f3?? loses straight away. 25.f4 should hold.

And for those who didn't catch the pun, blacks first name "Stein" means "Rock" in norwegian. My guess is that he has heard this joke (and dozens of variations) before. BTW, his norwegian rating at the time was 1973. |
|Nov-11-04|| ||Larsenb3: <acirce>Kindly pointed out Carlsen's mistakes and I agree, he didn't exactly play poorly in the opening. |
|Jun-06-05|| ||mandar: why white didnot played 22.Bh5 ??
I am sure i have missed something pls write that down
|Aug-08-06|| ||Wilsonia: I'm convinced 22.Bh5 wins for white. 21...Qg6 is a shocker in an otherwise excellent game.|
|Aug-08-06|| ||psmith: <mandar> <Wilsonia>|
Is it possible the score is incorrect? Perhaps moves 21 and 22 were transposed. 21. Bxf5 Rxf5 22. Nb3 makes some sense (threatening the fork Nd4) followed by 22... Qg6 etc.
|Aug-08-06|| ||psmith: However, the score is given as here at:
|Dec-23-08|| ||whiteshark: White's back rank is booked Sollid|
|May-27-12|| ||JohnBoy: Sollid defense|

Perhaps a better move is 8. Qd3 threatening to win a pawn after 8...O-O 9.Qc4+ Kh8 10.Bxc6 bxc6 11.Qxc6
