Dec-23-11  Rosbach: Good game. Nice video as well.
Feb-13-12  reilouco: Nice that when Ernst blundered with 28 .. Rf6 there was a mate in 14 (if he would play Ke8).

That's what I call a blunder. Making a mate in 14 turns into mate in one.

May-17-12  Llawdogg: Wow! What a little tactical genius!
May-17-12  LoveThatJoker: <Llawdogg> Good job commenting on this game: It is tremendous!

Jul-09-12  The Last Straw: I actually never like to give up pawns on the 7th rank like that but he wins.
Aug-09-12  zakkzheng: What a GREAT game played by Magnus Carlsen! Wow! Right now I can NEVER play a game like this! And, What a BEAUTIFUL checkmate

May-09-14  gabriel112000: This game never fails to impress.
May-24-14  WJW147: This is one my favourite games. Just sit back and watch a young mechanic ply his trade.
Aug-27-14  Ke2: Honestly even Magnus's "Brilliant" game seems boring to me, sac, sac mate standard. He may be the most boring world champion ever. Just my opinion of course.
Oct-01-14  aditya GM: What about 18...Re8 ?
Oct-23-14  tranquilsimplicity: The simplest ideas are genius; Qe5+, Qf5+, Qd7#, no interest in gross material superiority, but subtle essence. Quality over quantity; brains over brawn; economy over indulgence. And the result is sheer elegance in experience and achievement!#
Jan-25-15  John Abraham: great game
Feb-04-15  Eusebius: I think all of the old masters...Steinitz, Lasker, Capablanca, Alekhine...would have loved this game. But it's all about 18...fg6 instead of 18...Rfe8
Feb-12-15  TheBish: <chesschampion11: he is twelve years old!!!>

Actually, he was 13 when this was played. (1/24/2004, Magnus was born 11/30/1990.)

Feb-12-15  Mating Net: 17...c5 really doomed Black as it utterly prevented the Black Queen from joining the defense of the beleaguered Black King.
Mar-04-15  bennyvsfischer: 25...Rd6 was nice try...

  Alex Schindler: I don't think I've ever seen an "epaulette mate" sideways and replacing the edge of the board with a rook. Can anyone find other examples of this checkmate pattern? It's quite pretty.
May-01-15  ToTheDeath: Where is this Magnus now? One of his best.

Seriously? Here.

Carlsen vs Kramnik, 2015

Carlsen vs Radjabov, 2015

Carlsen vs Aronian, 2015

...making allowance for the fact that he's not playing the Sipke Ernsts of this world anymore.

Jun-18-16  roydi: The last mate move is just Perfect.
Jul-13-16  NeutralizeAggression: 16. Ne5

Black should consider 16...Qd5 instead of 16...RaD8

This will re-centralize Black's Queen, allow Black Queen to address White Queen's control of the white diagonal squares. Also allows Black the potential to exchange Queens which would be a good idea to reduce the arsenal of a genius Carlsen, transposing to more simplified endgame calculations.
