Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-09-12  BrunoGoes: Even though it is a blitz game, still it makes me impression to see Carlsen beaten with White, especially in a French Defense.
Jul-10-12  philchess: Opening theory states 3.Bd3 is never good because after 3...dxe4 Bxd4 4.Nf6 black gains a tempo. I wonder why did such a player would play this kind of amateur-like move?
Jul-11-12  hedgeh0g: The way White played in this game (Bf1-e4-f3), I think it's debatable whether a tempo was lost or not.
Jul-14-12  andachamp: Maybe Carlsen Played Be4 just to have an element of surprise but unfortunately he was the one caught up!
Dec-12-12  sicilianhugefun: nice french
Nov-05-14  Cobax12: Remember that Alexander Grischuk is a remarkable player!
