Jul-22-08  Mulyahnto: I don't think Carlsen was rated 2733 in 2001. In any case, black could have resigned after move 10.

Damn, I wish I could beat up a 2300-rated player like this. A

nd Carlsen was all of 10(!) when he played this massacre against a player with an FM(!) rating.

Jul-24-08  Quagmire: <notyetgm> I know the black player. He is the same age as Carlsen and also a talented player. Of course he didn't have a rating of 2300 during this game (a 2300 player wouldn't play this badly anyway). You should check out this player's games to see how strong he really is. By the way, I heard that he's beaten Carlsen once!
Jan-23-10  Cercatore: Awful game by blomqvist... what's the point of 11. Nxb3??

He need to move his queen...

Oct-25-10  jojomateo: 16. Rxe7 is better.
Oct-25-10  virginmind: it is but still, black should have resigned after 10th move(and he continues with what, 11...Nxb3?) admitting the blunder he committed. the fact that he continued until mate shows in my opinion that the two were fellows playing for fun. of course carlsen didnt have 2700+ at the time, maybe he was around 2000 elo and his opponent much less.
