Oct-09-07  Resignation Trap: So <this> is how Sutovsky defeated Carlsen. The score on the official site from yesterday was far more entertaining (not to mention utterly ridiculous)!
Oct-10-07  OneArmedScissor: This is a great game by Sutovsky!
Oct-10-07  xeroxmachine: 18. kf8 was a mouseslip from Carlsen he intended to play 0-0 but unfortunately....
Oct-10-07  amateur05: <xeroxmachine> Isn't 0-0 followed by Bh6 and black is losing material.
Oct-10-07  xeroxmachine: No no Carlsen had a plan to prevent that but unfortunately he slipped with the mouse can happen the best....
Oct-10-07  yevlev: A very deep understanding of chess by Sutovsky on moves 17-19! The rest was quite easy for a player of his caliber, in spite of the fact that Carlsen fought in the best way he could.
Oct-12-07  Discerning King: 34.Bb4!.. only Grandmasters can find moves like this one ...G.M. Emil!!
Nov-05-07  lopium: This game has something beautiful.
Nov-05-07  Jim Bartle: I'd sure like to learn how Carlsen would have avoided losing material after 18...0-0 19 Bh6
Mar-10-11  zev22407: To Jim Bartle black is losing material after 18)..0-0 Ignor the nonsens about a mouse slip
Jan-15-12  King Death: < Discerning King: 34.Bb4!.. only Grandmasters can find moves like this one ...>

As a one mover this move isn't hard to find, the hard part is seeing the tactics leading up to the idea.
