Aug-07-08  notyetagm: Like I've said before, I think that Magnus Carlsen is the strongest player in the world at using his queen, an ability he shows here at the tender age of 12(!).
Aug-04-15  RKnight: Carlsen missed an earlier win with the same motif. 37...Qh4+, 38.Kg1 (or Kg2), ...Qg4+ picks up the wayward rook.
