|Mar-31-08|| ||ruelas007: really a weird game, and i really donīt think Magnus had 2733 elo points in 2000 or he did?|
|Mar-31-08|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Carlsen rolls over his opponent so easily, it almost looks like 8.Qd2 (instead of h3) is virtually the losing move. 9.dxe5 might have been an improvement on d5.|
|Mar-31-08|| ||DeltaHawk: somebody tell me why kaiser resigned.|
|Mar-31-08|| ||vaskokibika: 37.fg3 Ke3|
|Mar-31-08|| ||olav dalkeith: 37: fxg3 Ne3 and a rook goes|
|Mar-31-08|| ||Alphastar: I'd have resigned after move 28. C'mon, black has a huge pawn center and two pieces for a rook to boot. Even a patzer could win that easily.|
|Mar-31-08|| ||alexmagnus: The game was played in 2000, when I didn't even know about Carlsen. The game is to be found in the "Wonderboy" book (2nd or 3rd game in the book). Comment in the book after 20 moves: "It's hard to imagine a better way of center control" :) As for ratings, Kaiser was, if I remember correctly, 2065, Carlsen had no Elo (he got his first Elo in April 2001).|
|Mar-31-08|| ||RandomVisitor: 23.f4 and white is back in the game.
25.c3 is perhaps white's last chance at counterplay.
15.Ne6 and black has problems.
17.f3 challenges black's center.
9.dxe5 was better.
|Mar-31-08|| ||Jimfromprovidence: The Kaiser could have been played cautiously and retreated his knight with 22 Na3, below, instead of leaving it en prise and playing 22 Nd5. |

Now he can re-post the knight at c4 if needed.
|Mar-31-08|| ||kevin86: Mr. Kaiser spent a great deal of time hunting black's rook with his minor pieces;it was only a short time later that black's counter-attack came and succeeded.|
|Mar-31-08|| ||Riverbeast: Yummy yummy Kaiser rolls|
|Mar-31-08|| ||mworld: wow the way the Carlsen advances his pieces so methodically amazes me.|
|Mar-31-08|| ||Xaurus: This is a really nice game from a 10-year-old, unrated Carlsen :-)|
|Mar-31-08|| ||Goato: <RandomVisitor>
How does 23.f4 put white back in the game?
After Qe8 the e pawn looks unstoppable (even if it means giving up the exchange)
|Mar-31-08|| ||RandomVisitor: <Goato><How does 23.f4 put white back in the game? >I see 23.f4 Qe6 24.Nbc7 Qd6 25.Nxa8 c4 26.Bxc4 Bxd5 27.Nb6 Qxb6 28.Bxd5 Rd8 29.Bb3 (29.Bc4) d3+ 30.Kh2 e3 31.Qe1 e2 32.Rxd3 exf1Q 33.Qxf1 and neither side has an advantage that I can see.|
After 23.f4 Qe8 24.Nbc7 Qf7 25.Qa5 Nc6 26.Qxc5 d3 27.Rac8 28.Qb6 Nd8 white has a playable game.
|Aug-07-08|| ||notyetagm: Position after 19 ... d5-d4

Wow, I do not remember the last time I saw Black playing the "Four Pawns Attack" variation of the Pirc Defense. :-)
|Nov-06-08|| ||freeman8201: Did Carlsen know he played the Pirc? Maybe he thought the position was a King's Indian and still played e5. I only see 5 games in chessgames Database|
|Oct-14-10|| ||GRANTZIERER: Olav delkieth: Another line that I think is winning is 37.) fxg3+ fxg3 38.)Qxg3+!! Kxg3 39.)Be5+ and winning.|
|Oct-15-10|| ||Sastre: 37...fxg3 is illegal <GRANTZIERER>. Did you mean another move instead?|
|Jan-05-11|| ||jmboutiere: 15.Ne6 better than 15.dc|
|Jan-05-11|| ||jmboutiere: 17.f3 better than 17.Nce2
after 17...d5 white lost the initiative
|Jan-05-11|| ||jmboutiere: 23.f4 better than 23.Nbc7
A great performance for a ten years chessplayer
Ten years after Carlsen is number one with 2814
|Feb-12-11|| ||Penguincw: I think this is Carlsen's first sacrifice.|
|Dec-19-11|| ||Dionysius1: I like 7...h3 tempting white to run his bsb out of squares. Once it goes (8...ng4) black's game seems v comfortable|
|Aug-02-14|| ||joddon: he knows his squares here already, forget about knowing how to trade off pieces properly!!good for you Magnus the Great!!|
