  luzhin: If 17..Rf8, then Karjakin has 18.Rg8!
Oct-20-07  ounos: 19. ... o-o!
It is rare that castling is such an attacking move. White must have missed it in his 17th move.
Nov-05-07  meteficha: This is Carlsen's 666 game here on CG :S
Nov-06-16  clement41: This blindfold game clearly deserves more attention, especially one week away for the wcc match! 17 Tg7!
19...0-0!! amazing attacking castling!
The knight on g5 must fall as Rh5 is forbidden
Jan-08-17  Mr. V: What's the problem with 17. Nxh7?
Jan-08-17  Ilkka Salonen: Too early queen exchange! What a way to go! Still, pretty nice for a blindfold game. Or I'm not sure if 18.Rxh7 would have really rescued the situation, but it looks better.

  thegoodanarchist: Based on GOTD title I was expecting to see a queenside castling move.

  ChessHigherCat: <Mr. V: What's the problem with 17. Nxh7?> maybe Bf5?
Jan-08-17  drpoundsign: Well, if Karjak had won, it would have made for a cuter pun. "This is a Karjak" "I KNOW what it IS" from "The Brady Bunch Movie"
