|Apr-20-07|| ||slomarko: white played like a 1500 player on a bad day.|
|Apr-20-07|| ||Rolfo: They know each other very well. Lie trying hard to find "novelties". Two years ago just after Magnus got his third GM norm, Lie beat him twice in a row as far as I remember..|
|Apr-20-07|| ||tamar: <Rolfo> It looks like Lie was "winging it" with this sacrificial line. |
Carlsen used little thinking time refuting it.
It was kind of like Lie cracking a wide serve to Roger Federer full of hope, and then watching the ball flash past him a second later up the line.
|Apr-20-07|| ||slomarko: no it was more like Lie being completely lost on move 14. with white pieces.|
|Apr-30-07|| ||ChessMan94: Lie was not true to himself...|
|May-01-07|| ||BlackNightmare: true lies|
|Jul-30-07|| ||Tacticstudent: Wow, this is what I call refuting the Bird in 15 moves- or less.|
|Dec-04-07|| ||Bobsterman3000: I can't imagine this attack working against any GM, especially a 2700+...|
|Dec-04-07|| ||cotdt: Lie threw this game.|
|Dec-04-07|| ||Jim Bartle: slomarko: "white played like a 1500 player on a bad day."|
Here's one time I agree with you, no question.
|Dec-14-09|| ||keypusher: A pinful game!|
|May-08-14|| ||Chris321: The Sicilian Bird,well Black cannot just go to sleep when playing against the White attack,it can be dangerous for Black if White gets its way with his King S attack.Its not as violent as the Kings Gambit though.At the top level it probably will not work,but at a club level it might surprise many,just like the Kings Gambit,just put it in the right hands an see how dangerous it can be!|
