  acirce: I used to play Rylander when we both were children.
May-29-04  tacticsjokerxxx: Stockholms Schacksällskap (at "salongerna")

acrice > that's nice.

May-29-04  poktirity: tacticsjokerxxx: Where are "Salongerna"?
May-29-04  Swindler: <poktirity>They moved not long ago to Ringvägen in Stockholm.
May-29-04  poktirity: Ok I played "skol-DM" there in March. Very low quality of play =).
Oct-04-04  tacticsjokerxxx: Nah top quality club!
Oct-07-05  thechesskid: This is an awesome game. At first I think Carlsen is going to lose his bishop on h3, but it doesn't matter because it helps Carlsen go for checkmate. Bh6 was spectacular! Maybe I can play like this against 2350s this weekend :)
Oct-29-05  Poisonpawns: This is a great game,but I love the Dutch Defense so i have to stick my two sense worth of analysis in.14.c5 was interesting,the main line goes 14.Re1 Nxc4 15.Re4 Nd6 16.Rxf4 c6 17.dxc6 bxc6.Black was too greedy with 15.g5!? threatening to trap the bishop.With the cramped condition of blacks pieces,It favors white to sac his bishop,and have the open g-file for attack,since white is really up 2 pieces anyway.So 15..b6! should have been played. 16.Kh1! not the greedy 16.Bxg5? which is met by 16..Qe8. 21.Qh5 White is down a piece but not really,it is actually black who is down a piece! as his bishop(c8) and Rook (a8) are out of the game.Dynamic chess from Carlsen here. 21..Qf8!? is blacks best defensive attempt 22.Rxg6+ hxg6 23.Qxg6+ Qg7 24.Qe8+ Qf8 25.Qg6+ is double edged.

25..Kg7!? is blacks last chance to stay in it but he loses the queen in one variation,but has chances with the rook and bishop vs the queen. 28..Bxe6 forces mate in six
Great game by Magnus:Black must play 15..b6 here to challenge whites idea in 14.c5!? besides after 15..g5 Blacks Kingside is weakened badly and then the g-file falls into whites hands.

Mar-22-06  azi: If i didn't know better I would say devine intervention. Its is wonderful to see such skill.
Jul-19-07  Atking: A good post <Poisonpawns>. Very respecfull to chess. Searching for the true if there is one... But <21..Qf8!? is blacks best defensive attempt 22.Rxg6+ hxg6 23.Qxg6+ Qg7 24.Qe8+ Qf8 25.Qg6+ is double edged.> looks wrong 25.Rg1+ Bg7 26.Qh5 with Ne4~Ng5 else immediatly 23.Rg1 looks very difficult. Isn't it? As you noted it, White is not really piece down. Therefore on 14.c5!? f3 15.Bh3 b6! (Ba6~Bd3 with in some lines Nd3 BxNc3! and Qxd5) to defend is really a fine idea. In all, we will agree: another wonderfull game from this young genuis and an interesting opening somewhat neglected.
Sep-11-07  cionics: 18 Bh6 and the sequence of moves that follow it are so beautiful.
Jun-04-08  Whitehat1963: Tuesday/Wednesday puzzle after 29...Kg8. Actually, more of a test of efficiency.

  notyetagm: Wow, a *powerful* game by Carlsen.
Jan-17-09  WhiteRook48: wow, and white sacs all minor pieces for checkmate!
Feb-01-09  WhiteRook48: funny thing that. Dennis spelled backwards is sinned.
Premium Chessgames Member
  PinnedPiece: At move 25.? It's not obvious how white should proceed. It almost seems like the attack has run out of steam. And yet Carlsen finds a forcing continuation that can have only one result.

He *IS* good with the Queen!

  An Englishman: Good Evening: If you intend to give Rook odds to the likes of Carlsen, you might want to play with the White pieces instead of Black.
Jul-24-13  Moszkowski012273: Black had several chances near the end to draw, but missed them all.

  FSR: <WhiteRook48> Dennis and Edna sinned.
Jul-24-13  eaglewing: How about 24... b6 with the idea Bc8-a6-d3?

24. Ne4 b6 25. Qe5+ Kg8 26. Ng5 Bxg5 27. Qxg5 Ba6 (Kg7 is not forced, losing the g6 with Queen exchange is fine and Qh6 is countered with Bd3) 28. Rg3 Bd3 29. Rxh3 Qf8 30. Qe5/h4 Qg7.

Any improvements for White?
Remark: The line is not checked by silicone!

  JimmyRockHound: FSR - I like it. Dennis and Edna sinned.

Excellent. When did people first realize that Carlssen was a genius?

Premium Chessgames Member
  JimmyRockHound: A thing of beauty.
Jul-24-13  Erlend: A brilliant game by the 12 year old norwegian!
