|Jul-24-05|| ||shinesaza: No comments on this game? =)
<possible previous day scenario>
Carlsen: Hmm.. should I recheck my nimzo.. naah, i'll just play some videogames.
</possible previous day scenario>
|Jul-24-05|| ||stijn: Not so good.|
|Jul-24-05|| ||Montreal1666: Take it easy on young Magnus. He will promise to play less video games and more computer chess!!!|
|Jul-24-05|| ||Koster: Did black already go wrong on move 5? It would be interesting to see the times the players used on each move.|
|Jul-24-05|| ||notyetagm: When does this game leave theory?
|Jul-24-05|| ||Montreal1666: 7)...Bxc5 is the blunder (and that should be where it leaves the theory!!)|
|Jul-25-05|| ||shortsight: Maybe black would have been able to hold longer with 11.. Qxf2 instead of 0-0.|
|Jul-25-05|| ||Montreal1666: <shortsight:> It will not change much. It will probably even help white to complete his developement. The problem is that the Knight is pinned to the black king and cannot deffend the Bishop at c5 and the queen cannot stay around forever to keep defending the Bishop.|
|Jul-25-05|| ||cu8sfan: So that's how it ended! I was playing facing the GMs and the screens and was wondering "Hey, why doesn't Magnus just take the f-pawn?" Before I was able to think about it it was my turn to move and when I had time to look at it again it was over. Would it be better to play ♕xf2 before castling? I guess so.|
|Jul-26-05|| ||crafty: 11...♕xf2 12. ♘h3 ♕d4 13. ♗c3 ♕e3+ 14. ♔b1 ♕h6 15. ♗e5 (eval 2.79; depth 13 ply; 250M nodes)|
|Jul-28-05|| ||sfm: 9.-,♕d4 looks like a big mistake. 10.0-0-0 is a winning move with numerous threats, the most obvious on the board. I'd have tried 9.-,♕c6 but it is not a nice position. Now white wins the game without making a single difficult decision! Unusual on that level.|
|Jul-28-05|| ||sitzkrieg: What s wrong with the position after 9...Qc6?
Cant u just 0-0 and play something Like Be7?
(if white does 0-0-0 then u can excange queens maybe even with bringin the Knight into play)
|Jul-28-05|| ||awfulhangover: 11.-00 is the fatal blunder. His only good move was 11.- Qd6. Magnus obviously missed 12. Bc3! He thought white would play Be3, and had prepared Qb4 with a good position.|
|Jul-28-05|| ||Giearth: Perhaps they will be thinking:-
Magnus: A lesson to be remembered for few years.
Yannick: A game I will remember only for few weeks then forget 'bout it.
|Jul-29-05|| ||DanRoss53: The dubious 5... c5?! may have worked in Bareev vs Topalov, 2005, but Carlson is now +0 -2 =1 with it (L E Johannessen vs Carlsen, 2005 and a loss to Erwin L'Ami which I've just uploaded).|
|Jul-30-05|| ||iron maiden: Not a bad showing by Pelletier--year after year he's the lowest-rated player in Biel, but he always acquits himself fairly well.|
|Jul-30-05|| ||tpstar: <im> Welcome back! How was your trip?|
|Jul-31-05|| ||iron maiden: <tpstar> Very good, thank you.|
|Jul-31-07|| ||ruelas007: Why the h*** did he played Rb8?|
|Nov-18-15|| ||Domdaniel: <Magnus: A lesson to be remembered for few years. >
Until, say, 2015, when I should be world champion, and blunder again versus Pelletier...|
