  chancho: Heck of a game by the Champ.
Dec-29-16  scholes: World Champion missed a simple one move fork 32 Ng4. Shows how irrelevant blitz time control is.

  chancho: With 32.Ng4 Carlsen gets a piece back but loses two pawns.

32.Ng4 Rxb2 33.Nxh6 Rxa2.

Looks like Carlsen is still winning but a player like Moro could make a fight out of it.

Dec-29-16  vladimir85: And then 34.Nxg8.

  Bobby Fiske: This is my favorite game from Day 1. That early piece sack was awesome.

<World Champion missed a simple one move fork 32 Ng4.> Hard to believe that both Moro and Magnus overlooked this fork. I guess Moro offered the exchange deliberately and that Magnus rejected it, having stronger believe in his upcoming pawn storm.

  rogge: It's a blitz game, for Christ's sake. Oversights happens, Carlsen missing Karjakin's fork, for instance.

  thegoodanarchist: LOL, Carlsen voluntarily goes down a piece, and then, contrary to all the chess books, keeps offering to trade pieces! In fact, he <forces> a couple of piece trades!

He then goes on to win whilst down a piece. Wow! Love Carlsen! Love his play!
