Feb-22-07  syracrophy: Why did white resigned?
Oct-07-07  The Chess Express: White is totally busted. 22. ... Na5 23. Bc2 Nc4 is hopeless. After 10. c5 Nc4 white can improve with 11. Bf4 when the d5 threat should give white a comfortable edge. I suspect that 10. ... Nc4 is a blunder. 10. ... Nd7 looks better.
Feb-06-09  sagahelten: Strange, I was the first to play this game as a "Guess the move". It's interesting that you sometimes has to make a "boring" move to win!! Carlsen, the kid, was only 11 at the time! What a talent...
Dec-07-09  Furansowakun: 10 Why not d5 (and not c5), with a threat on knight and bishop???
Apr-11-11  Truthpirate: MR Furansowakun, black played 9... Be6 intentionally to provoke 10. d5 and that way bring the night to e5 and create more weaknesses in the already advanced white pawns. You have to keep in mind that white castle long and Carlsen was trying to provoke to later punish white´s weaknesses.
Apr-11-11  Shams: ...and of course 13.d5 is met by ...Bxd5 and 14...Bg5 winning the missus.
Dec-29-16  mandor: What? no I Think that just 10.. Ne5 tricking queen and gaining a tempo.
