  Mulyahnto: 18. Rc3? White probably didn't see that his queen did not have a safe escape square.

  whiteshark: Die Partie vom Januar 2003 ist ebenfalls ein Beispiel für die K.O.-Mentalität des Nachziehenden. Gegen <Rolf Sander>, einen Spieler mit Elo 2043 vom Hamburger Landesligisten Barmek, gelingt dem 12-jährigen Norweger Magnus Carlsen nicht nur ein Kantersieg, sondern auch die Basis für eine IM-Norm.

Oct-05-15  RKnight: The alternate finish if Rolf wants to keep his Q is even worse: 20 Qxg5 Rxh2+, 21 Kg1 Nxe4, 22 Qxg7 Rdh8, 23 g3 Nd2 and now black needs to give up his Q to avoid mate.
