We need more insight like this.

Actually,arter 25.Bxf7, the position of White is quite unpleasant. There was NO ANY CHECKMATE. Topa had to play,as example 25...Bd3,and 26...Ne2 and the only one,wich White have to do,is ..to resign. This game must be shame for both!

Of course Carlsen was in bad shape but he fought hard and his opponent made a second best decision when he bailed out by giving up his queen. This kid keeps the pressure on and makes his opponents work for everything they get.
|Feb-02-12|| ||King Death: < kappertjes: ...I was watching this game on chessbomb and had to simply ignore the kibitzers there. Patzers calling Topalov, Carlsen and Aronian in turn idiots...>|
Those kibitzers were right, none of them can play. Right about then is the time to throw your head back and laugh because of those stupid statements.
|Feb-23-12|| ||obsesschess: This game is outstanding!
Agree with the above comment that Chessbomb is full of foolish commentary. The kibitzers have no idea.
|Mar-06-12|| ||Naniwazu: Tal-like play by Carlsen. His sacrificial attack was unsound, but I think Topalov panicked and let Carlsen win.|
|Mar-06-12|| ||Everett: By move 14 this looks like a position straight out of the Ruy Lopez.|
|Mar-10-12|| ||colorvis: 25. Bxf7 is a brilliant move|
|Apr-05-12|| ||masoudsad: After Bxf7 the only way to avoid mate
is Qxf7. Isn't it?
|Apr-05-12|| ||kamalakanta: Everett, even by move 10! Ruy all the way!|
|Apr-25-12|| ||cypfer: @masoudsad, gxf6 would be better.|
|Apr-25-12|| ||Jason Frost: <cypfer> 25...gxf6? 26. Qg8+ Kxh6 27. Qh8+ Kg5 28. Qh5+ Kf4 29. Qg4# or 29 g3#|
|Jan-01-13|| ||taobert: WRONG. This position is dead lost for white- and it amazes me that somehow black chooses to find the losing move. The more games I analyze of Carlsen's the more I'm feeling some kind of conspiracy here. I wonder, if since he is the poster child of chess, sometimes games are "given up". Look at what happened to his game vs. Jon Ludvig Hammer who misses Rc1, go look. This is getting ridiculous.|
Bd3 -3.17 Deep Rybka 4.1 x64.
|Jan-01-13|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: conspiracy?|
|Jan-01-13|| ||DanielBryant: Yep. Beware when your opponent has colored yogurt delivered to the board.|

|Jan-02-14|| ||jaga1131: What a match it was!!|
|Feb-11-14|| ||Whitehat1963: Truly an incredible game at such a high level of play. Tactical genius!|

No the whole thing was a Tal-like bluff. Either 25...Qb7 or 25...Bd3 should win for Black.
It was very untypical play by Carlsen, but the result was typical: Carlsen wins again!
|Feb-11-14|| ||devere: I think it's just like poker. When you have the reputation for being an ultra-sound player, once in a while you can bluff and your opponent may believe you!|
|Feb-12-14|| ||rickycota: for black in 23. g4 or 25. Bd3. Carlsen has nothing, he can't move almost nothing without losing material in time. Topalov got scared and who wouldn't against Carlsen.|
|Feb-12-14|| ||Whitehat1963: What is the last move where Topalov still had a chance for a win or draw?|
|Feb-13-14|| ||devere: "Self-confidence is very important. If you donít think you can win, you will take cowardly decisions in the crucial moments, out of sheer respect for your opponent. You see the opportunity but also greater limitations than you should. I have always believed in what I do on the chessboard, even when I had no objective reason to. It is better to overestimate your prospects than underestimate them."
|Feb-13-14|| ||talwnbe4: Carlsen made a mistake 21. Bh4 ? (21. Rc1), but black was a full pawn up after 20..Nxb2|
