  alexmagnus: Magnus Carlsen, the King of Checkmates ( he won 3 games in this chpship by a checkmate!)
Jul-12-05  sharkbenjamin: this child is the real thing!!!! wow!!!!
Dec-04-05  shaikh123: i think he is proving to be next fischer.
Dec-11-05  divesh: i have been observing all the games of magnus and my specialist is knowing the weakpoint of the adversary and i am sure if i play against that magnus who si thr same age like me i will win ..........guys rememeber this name divesh the future world champion ..........thanx
Dec-16-05  Jafar219: This game is not deep but beautiful one.Good attacking masterpiece by Norvegian child.
Jan-16-06  jackmandoo: Yea he's good with his horses and castles. I understand that the name of the game is checkmate but I wouldn't give all of my peices away for it. I always try and leave some of my peices on the board because onlookers who dont know whats going on might think that your losing.
Feb-27-06  patzer2: Carlsen's 23. Re5! sets up a winning demolition of pawn structure combination with 24. Nxh6+!!
Aug-30-06  blingice: I really don't like the opening, to be honest. It doesn't look good or elegant or anything, and it just reminds me of someone who has never played chess before randomly throwing their pawns into the center ranks of the board. (Of course, I have never played 1. Nf3, and this is probably why.)

It's interesting how Carlsen had settled one of his rooks on the h3 square so early. For the rest of the game, that rook was invested in attacking the king-side. So, if Tallaksen had defended properly (and I don't even know if he could've done something) Carlsen would somehow have to extricate that rook to fight the rest of the game. Other than that, this game went straight to my Game Collection: The Greatest Mates Ever.

Oct-02-06  Starf1re: the way the ratings increase every year i'm sure he'll be at 3500 by 2020
Oct-26-06  alexkerford: This kid is the real deal man
Dec-28-06  adviser: Carlsen & Karlakin are already super gms'. I think give him another 4-5 years he may become a world champion.

  notyetagm: Unbelievably brilliant kingside attack by Magnus. Too bad the other 2700s don't let Magnus play like this. :-)

Aug-13-08  Hawks: Carlsen is young and can think clearly.
I hope he doesnt get into alcohol or other drugs.
Aug-13-08  Udit Narayan: I am confident that Magnus Carlsen will not pull a Lindsay Lohan.

  technical draw: 14 year old Magnus Carlsen. Brilliant game. Who would think of putting their king rook on h3 in FRONT of the h pawn? First goes the knight, then the rook, then the second rook and finally the bishop. What's left? Just the queen to checkmate in the center. WOW.....
Sep-20-11  indoknight: the champion teacher! from Botvinnik ,to Kasparov ,to Carlsen(tomorrow)
Jan-21-12  th3doctor: This rook maneuver is pretty crazy, not sure I've seen something like this before in a kingside fianchetto structure
Feb-03-12  Girkassa: Greetings from the player who lost this game! :)

Indeed, I was shocked when Magnus played 15.Rh4, and I can't remember ever seeing such a manoeuvre before. I remember he wasn't too satisfied by his own play after the game, and he thought the position would be equal if I had played 18...a5. After 18...Qb8? it was a downhill struggle. Still, when I realized the position was lost, I was glad that it happened in such an entertaining way.

Feb-03-12  King Death: <Girkassa>, welcome to our site!

Your move 5...b5 is a move Adorjan used to play back in the 1980s but I always liked 5...d5 or 5...Bb4+.

Mar-24-12  piltdown man: Phenomenal.
Aug-18-13  SoUnwiseTheKnight B4: This one should have a name. Maybe Slaughter-loo Sune-set.
