|Mar-02-14|| ||knowall: How about 27 Be4 as a move. The idea is put the Bishop on c2 dealing with the threat in some lines of the black c pawn queening. If the Bishop is captured then Nxe4 and how is the threat of Nd6 to be met.
Once the bishop is on c2 then Nh5 followed by Ng7 is a threat.
Thought of Be4 myself as real men do not use computers.|
|Mar-02-14|| ||knowall: As you were:
After 27 Be4 cd 28 Nxe4 Black has 28... Qd5 and if 29 Nd6 then 29... Bb7 seems to refute was a clever idea at the time
|Mar-11-14|| ||Levo: Why do I feel like Anand threw this game?|
|Mar-28-14|| ||PinnedPiece: GTM score 47 par 41.
Quite a game.
|Mar-31-14|| ||epicchess: csmath, please think about the position before you start talking trash about other people's responses. Considering the fact that my rating is most likely like twice of yours, I would my comments to myself if I were you.|
|Mar-31-14|| ||SirRuthless: Shots fired!|
|Mar-31-14|| ||perfidious: <epicchess> My guess is that your rating is <not> twice that of <csmath>, for he is a most capable player-doubt your rating is even twice that of my own!|
|Apr-03-14|| ||epicchess: perfidous, it was an exaggeration. However, I am still better than you, and him. Also, I do not post responses randomly, I analyze them myself, not on a computer, like most people here do. I think it is bad to compare human games with that of a machine.|
|Apr-09-14|| ||joddon: magnus fights up the ranks....one rank at a time. once the fifth rank is his he walks his way up very very slowly.....and in the end anand is making no counter play uses, I mean he has no effort in his attack....is he sleeping , I mean there needs to be a lot more said and done to pick the right initiative....giving magnus the initiative means you are dead.not easy ofcourse but one has to try atleast...poor effort by anand in my case.|
|Apr-14-14|| ||Everett: Far from being refuted, 4.a3 and 4.f3 are absolutely the way to go to attack the Nimzo. Botvinnik and Bronstein thought so, and I agree. Spassky has played these themes as well.|
And Karpov didn't always have a picnic with it.

A masterpiece from both players with the exception of Nf1 from Anand which was a complete blunder.. And Carlsen never moves his queen once! Love this game.

Great tension! I feel sorry for Anand once he realizes what he's done, you can see the panic and pain in his face. Carlsen just gets up and I'm guessing goes to the toilet where I'm pretty sure he just looked into the mirror and said.. "I've done it!". Great little clip.

Wow excellent video which shows every note of agony. Music works as well.

|Nov-08-14|| ||csmath: The game is a fantastic example of near invincibility of Carlsen. It is amazing that he was not only able to defend in an original game but that he was actually able to turn the tables on Anand. It seems that 42. ...Re3 would have been very difficult for white to defend. |
Very nice game for the start.
|Nov-09-14|| ||MissScarlett: You have the wrong page.|
|Feb-21-15|| ||archie57: i think 22.f5 is mistaken why not 22.xb3 carlsen is smart player three win is over|

Mark, sir, you are wrong! Carlsen does move his queen on move 28 and it ends the game immediately.
But of course you were referring to his <first> queen, not his second one :)
