  Sokrates: Sokrates: <geeker: A conspiracy theorist would say that the games are all scripted fakes, and that the first three will be drawn before Magnus ekes out an exciting Round 4 triumph...[Note this is a satirical post]>

Satire becoming reality. Why, oh why should this match be a public event? Between friends such games are played at the kitchen table accompanied by a beer and some french fries.

Jun-29-13  schweigzwang: "A" beer?
Jun-29-13  JoergWalter: <schweigzwang: "A" beer?> and 2 straws <Sokrates> is right - what was the purpose of this match playing it publicly?
Jun-29-13  Absentee: <JoergWalter: <schweigzwang: "A" beer?> and 2 straws <Sokrates> is right - what was the purpose of this match playing it publicly?>

It was organized by the "Nansen Center for Peace and Dialogue" to celebrate the long-standing relationship between Lillehammer and Sarajevo and, as already said, it also served as opening show for the norwegian championship.

Are you folks serious?

Jun-29-13  JoergWalter: <Absentee> thanks for the info. serious - just kidding around.
Jun-29-13  SirRuthless: Omg omg so exciting what a fair fight this is....

Could you provide the link to the primary source for this info as I would like to include the info in their bios and footnote the source. At present I'm using your post as the source.

  Sokrates: <Absentee> <rogge> Thanks both of you. I didn't think about that context - was too quick - and stand corrected. Sorry!

  HeMateMe: Pedrojevic is a 2600 player, Carlsen is 2800. I wonder if MC was somehow masking his skills in case Anand was watching?

At chess base, MC says "Pedrojevic was my childhood hero." I wonder why? The Bosnian isn't a super GM. Was he a childhood phenom like Carlsen, or perhaps he gave exhibitions in Scandinavian countries?

Jul-01-13  anandrulez: Probably since they both won European Champs at the same time . I think 4-0 short circuit vs a GM is in general impossible in Rapids even . Ofcouse Fischer Kasparov were different , they had the energy . Carlsen also has the energy and determination to win, but in a friendly match I think the point was to just play some good games . Lets not forget Karpov defeated Kasparov in couple of games in a recent Karpov Kasparov rapids .
Jul-06-13  waustad: The Norwegian championships are completed and the games can be found here: as well as here: http://turneringsservice.sjakklubb....
Dec-23-13  Conrad93: Carlsen barely managed to get a win against a 2600+.

What a joke of a player.

Dec-23-13  rogge: At least both players know the en passant rule.
Dec-23-13  Absentee: <Conrad93: Carlsen barely managed to get a win against a 2600+.

You know it was a friendly match, right?

Dec-23-13  Conrad93: <You know it was a friendly match, right?>

That should make no difference.

Dec-23-13  Absentee: <Conrad93: <You know it was a friendly match, right?>

That should make no difference.>

It does.

  nok: Absentee grasps the concept of stakes. It's Christmas.
Dec-23-13  Absentee: ...except that this isn't about stakes.

It's about the match being a public ceremony in the guise of a chess event. I suspect it would have been considered atrocious sportsmanship, and completely out of place, if Carlsen had gone all guns blazing.
