Jun-17-14  Ed Frank: Pretty crazy draw.
Jun-17-14  belgradegambit: Bravo to Carlsen! The Dragon has been a no-show at the highest levels and here he plays it against an expert in the Yugoslav attack. The result: Fireworks!
Jun-17-14  NeoIndian: <belgradegambit: Bravo to Carlsen!> Agree wholeheartedly- that's more like it!

  FSR: Carlsen has played the Dragon quite a bit, although his last outing with it was in 2010.
Jun-18-14  Reggie T: Juste before going to sleep yesterday, i check fastly this game. I found an interesting try on 23...Bxg4 24. Rxf7 Ne2+ 25. Qxe2 and black must find 25...Qxb3, because on 25...Bxe2, white win with 26. Rf8++!! Kxf8 27. Nh7 mate!

Jun-18-14  Chris321: Carlsen like to play the Dragon,but good game by two of my favourite players!
Jun-19-14  HighestUnrated: ReggieT - 23...Bg4 loses to Qxg6. This is the reason d5 is played
Jun-19-14  Reggie T: Chessbase give 23...Bxg4 and if 24. Qxg6, Qe3+ 25. Kb2 Nd5+ win the queen.
Aug-09-14  1d410: Must've been a draining exercise for both players.

I wonder if we'll see such exciting games in the World Championship, which will start today in NY.

  vonKrolock: Yes whiteshark this is great fighting chess - comparable (for me) to the 13th and to some of the draws from the Reykjavik 72 match--- let's hope for the best: fearless open sharp struggles
Premium Chessgames Member
  vonKrolock: Or the 7th from Schlechter Lasker 1910 or (say) the 8th from Short Kasparov 93 - at least one of such draws or your plata back

  vonKrolock: Whiteshark: Great to see You too!! We had not yet fogo no tabuleiro, but the Tromp is a trompical (carioca) opening . .. Good for the match that Karjakin was able to PUT IN a cool (fresh) defense
