  patzer2: The strong 23...e3! is the move which appears to provide Black the winning advantage. Though not entirely forced, it sets up the winning skewer tactic which follows.

  patzer2: Carlsen is a 13-year-old prodigy from Norway, who recently won Wijk aan Zee Group C with a 2700 norm. I understand the Microsoft corporation is providing sponsorship to help his family cover tournament and travel expenses.

  beenthere240: 21....e4 may have been the winner. The combination is well underway at the time 23...e3 is played.

  patzer2: <beenthere240> Good observation. I agree with you that 21...e4! is the winner. Very impressive combination by Carlsen.
Jun-08-04  Whitehat1963: An excellent game from the prodigy.
Mar-11-05  bambino3: nice to see him play well from black's side.
May-10-06  gauer: Are those the call of Loyd's organ pipes at the position of the 23rd move? Not quite, but perhaps a thematic composition could soon be in order...
Sep-13-11  pinknipple: 23 ....e3 is possible due to bad position of white knight on a5
Jan-20-18  SpiritedReposte: <27. ...Be1!> The sting at the end of a combination.
