  An Englishman: Good Evening: And a good pun, but really like 18.e5, the beginning of the attack. "Let's see--e5 is defended four times, therefore I'll put something there!"
Mar-06-19  Ironmanth: An intense, insane game! Really like this one, chessgames, thanks!
Mar-06-19  Cheapo by the Dozen: The mating attack at the end is remarkable as well.
Mar-06-19  ajile: Carlsen's line with 4..dxc6 and a later ..f5 saccing a pawn was a very interesting take on this opening.
Mar-06-19  ajile: Note: In the final position if 41..Qf1 then 42.Ng3+ wins the queen and the game since g4 is coming and checkmate looms instantly.

  master8ch: Since Black could have played 32...Qxd7, why not force him to do so with 32.Rdxd7, instead of RexD7?
Mar-06-19  Momentum Man: Black was in a tough situation after 23.Ne4.

I think 23...Rc7 would have been a blunder, because then 24.Rxf7!! wins a piece. 24...Kxf7?? 25.Nxd6+ and wins
