|Sep-03-14|| ||MarkFinan: <morfishine: Black should be "arestad" for falling into this> Lol. Easy Mark, long time no speak.. I don't think it would matter what black played after Bxh3?? You're playing a young Carlsen = A loss. |
|Nov-14-14|| ||jatr: This game has been featured in the Danish weekly Donald Duck magazine. The magazine was released on the 13th of November 2014 and Magnus Carlsen is co-author of the story.|
|Dec-09-14|| ||Reavvan: so what if black bishop defends the e pawn then white knight f7 to check?? it's not mate anyway|
|Dec-09-14|| ||Bureaucrat: <MarkFinan: Even if black had played 35..kh8 and white played BxN.. fxg5 (??) and Qg3.>|
If 35...Kh8, I think even stronger is 36.Nxf6!, which threatens the Knight on g6. If the Knight moves, White mates with Nf7+, Qxh7+ and Qg8, and after 36...Bxf6 37.Rxf6 Qxf6 38.Bxg5 Black must give up his Queen to avoid immediate mate.
Nice game, indeed.
|Dec-09-14|| ||Bureaucrat: <the Knight on g6>... should be g5.|
|Feb-12-15|| ||ToTheDeath: Piece of cake... for Carlsen.|
|Apr-14-15|| ||MSteen: I just can't believe the depth of thought and the incredible calculation at this age from young Magnus Carlsen. One for the ages!|
|Aug-24-15|| ||MarkFinan: This game or this game Wei Yi vs L Bruzon Batista, 2015 (kibitz #76) ?|
I still prefer this one.
|Feb-26-16|| ||Alexandro: I think that 31. N x N would be better to black. Q x N+, kh8...|
|May-10-16|| ||Alexandro: 15. g6? What a weak move of black! Harestade has started to lose at that point of game...|

|Jul-02-16|| ||kishore4u: Great finish by carlsen!!|
|Apr-21-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: Black should have played 22. ..Rxa1 23. Qxa1 Nc4 to get some play on the Q side and prevent Carlsen from diverting his own Q to the sidelines.|
|Jun-22-17|| ||GM Igor Smirnov: Check out the complete analysis of this game in this instructive video lesson - http://chess-teacher.com/affiliates...|
|Sep-11-17|| ||tpstar: <one of Magnus Carlsen's more known combinations> New to me.|
|May-26-18|| ||Justin796: Carlsen is the best player ever in terms of raw calculation ability! Tal is my favorite because winning with style and charisma is better than winning for the sake of winning lol...|
|Jul-06-18|| ||Caissa04: 18...f6 is a very funny move.|
|Feb-03-19|| ||rcs784: Intetesting move order by Black in the opening, playing 5...b5 and only then 6...Be7 instead of the other way around. Could this have possibly been a slight psychological ploy, trying to make Magnus think he was going into the Archangelsk variation (which is the usual reason you would play b5 on move 5 instead of move 6 in the Spanish) and mentally prepare himself for a sharp fight, then steer the game into a closed, positional battle instead? Magnus was only 12 at the time; did Harestad think he could throw the upstart kid off his rhythm with a little mind game? Or am I reading too much into this?|

<Nice game, indeed.>>
It's a masterpiece, Buro! I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say this is his first classic, not quite his immortal but it's in his top 3 games that <I've seen>. I love that queen sac, I always come back to this game when I start looking at Carlsen games. I'd have been proud to lose <this game in this way>. Pure genius, pity he doesn't play games like this anymore.
PS. Stay away from this "MarkFinan". I've heard he's bad news :)
|Apr-23-19|| ||Patzer Natmas: It seemed like a boring game till the surprise sac and easy checkmate by Carlsen.|
|Apr-30-19|| ||Dr Winston OBoogie: Boring game?? Dude. Go through it slowly, use Guess-the-Move and see what your score is, I'll then tell you mine :)|
|Apr-30-19|| ||moronovich: I would love to play "boring" games like this :)|
|Apr-30-19|| ||Dr Winston OBoogie: <WE ARE NOW FOLLOWING
Carlsen vs H Harestad, 2003.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF CARLSEN.
Your score: 61 (par = 39)>
I only got that score because I knew the last 8 or 9 moves, literally years since I last played GTM... I could have sworn you got a rating of some kind like "Excellent!" and "Superb" etc etc but I just got the golf score 🤷♂. I kinda know this game like a lot of people do the Morphy game so it's no great achievement on my part (plus I know the first 10 opening moves anyways!) but I'm definitely going to ask Sargon about GTM, I'm sure it's changed.
|May-02-19|| ||Patzer Natmas: @ Dr Winston OBoogie: I can't play the guess the move, but thanks for the comment. My name speaks for itself hehehe.|
