Nov-20-10  podjevsky: I think Carlsen lost when he put his king en pris, but it was later in this incomplete game.
May-10-11  IRONCASTLEVINAY: see complete game as an video

YOU will see in the end carlsen post the king and illegally tries to take back his move But he protested by Boris.

Apr-07-12  syracrophy: Yes, the scoresheet is incomplete. At the ending (♖ VS ♗), Carlsen put his ♔ in a square where he was losing his ♖ to a skewer, and tried to correct it but it was late. He didn't touch the clock but Savchenko protested he left the ♔ on that square and Carlsen resigned
