Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-22-04  MoonlitKnight: It was the 25th move where Carlsen in fact blundered with Qd7. After 26.Na4, he was more or less lost.
Apr-01-07  Resignation Trap: The game score on is the same as here, but Carlsen actually played 17...Rcc8 (NOT 17...Rfc8?) With the incorrect move, the game became indecipherable after 25.Rg3, and they simply gave up going any further.

Here's the position after Black's 16th move:
