Apr-25-08  shahjinan: lolz...I wanted to be the first for kibitzing on the first game of GM Carlsen..who gonna rock soon in the a world champion:)
Jun-10-11  lemonadepawn: don't be so sure...
Jul-25-11  Grandpa jo: 8...h6? gives combustion to the future attack of the white. The variations with h4 may seem very vicious in the Torre. What a beautiful picture at move 18 when black have to give her queen in a desesperate situation! 28.e5 permit penetration via dark squares.
Jan-27-14  rjsolcruz: The World Champion!
Mar-13-14  Sebastiaan: 14. ...Rd8 is the turning point. Black is letting white bring out his 2nd rook into the game, which is deadly. Instead 14. ... cxd4 lets the knight access e5, so white has to deal with that. After for example 15.cxd4 e5
Aug-02-14  joddon: sorry to say that is the dullest game I ever seen the Great magnus play....looks like he was sleeping here.
