Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-17-06  blingice: A blunder by Nyysti at the end, but Carlsen set up a great trap on moves 31 and 32, shredding Black's pawns to three, one pawn islands and one two pawn island that can't do anything combined with only one active ♖, ♗, and ♘ against Carlsen's 5 pawns, protected ♔ and active ♕, ♗, and ♘. This is the only time Carlsen has played 3. ♘c3 to 2..♘c6, according to the <>'s Opening Explorer.

Apr-20-19  Cheapo by the Dozen: In retrospect, Black should have taken the draw by repetition.

  OhioChessFan: That's 2 puns in a row that totally escape me.
Apr-20-19  Ilkka Salonen: Both players are currently participating to the Grenke chess tournament, Nyysti to open section.
Apr-20-19  Isilimela: Imaginative opening play by a very young Carlsen!Centre pawns roll forward and completely lock up the black queen side.

Re the draw by repetition - looks like Carlsen would have accepted that but did he really need to ?! Stockfish suggests exchange of queens.

Apr-20-19  Ilkka Salonen: I guess this game is topical, because Carlsen is playing a junior player himself today.
