Aug-24-06  slomarko: weird also he had 1 minute on move 22.
Aug-24-06  TheGladiator: <slomarko> I think you are right. If you watched Andersson during the game, it looked like he didn't care much about the outcome, so him throwing the game is one of the best explanations I've seen so far.
Aug-24-06  VargPOD: Andersson's time control has been odd in other Youth-Experience -games in my opinion. He's been consuming massive amounts of time in simple positions, and now facing a complex position, he just paralyzed.
Aug-24-06  Per: <VargPOD: Andersson's been consuming massive amounts of time in simple positions, and now facing a complex position, he just paralyzed.>

Ulf feels best at home in simplified positions with few pieces and few tactical resources, where he can reach his favourite result, a draw. I think your explanation that Carlsen paralyzed him with a complex position is closer to the truth than that he should have thrown the game, as some kibitzers have suggested.

Aug-24-06  TheGladiator: <Per> No, no! I think <slomarko> has seen deeper than most of us - what we might be facing here, is some devious Scandinavian ploy to bring Carlsen above 2700 on the october rating list. As some of you might have noticed, Carlsen's second is from Denmark! Say no more...
Aug-25-06  slomarko: i think it is more a ploy to push carlsen in front of karjakin so that he qualifies for amber 2006!
Aug-25-06  Dres1: Hey i am hearing that Magnus was throwing raisins at Andersson. I find this hard to believe... has anyone else heard this funny rumor?
Aug-25-06  tonsillolith: and then Andersson thought, "Oh this is just grape."
Aug-25-06  Runemaster: Magnus' plot among the currant crop is bearing fruit; it's his "raisin d'etre".
Aug-25-06  fromoort: I think Carlsen emptied his orange juice bottle in Ulf's pants and caused him to resign.
Aug-25-06  sixfeetunder: No wonder that they say that Carlsen is a monster.
Aug-25-06  euripides: <Hey i am hearing that Magnus was throwing raisins at Andersson. I find this hard to believe... has anyone else heard this funny rumor?> It's just sour grapes.
Aug-25-06  dycotiles: Well we have here a perfect example of Fischer times, when he inspired so much fear on his opponents that they would made silly blunders, run out of time, or resign in inferior positions well before anything was decided. Go on Carlsen ...!
Aug-25-06  Xaurus: < i think it is more a ploy to push carlsen in front of karjakin so that he qualifies for amber 2006!>I am sure Amber 2006 would be interesting for Carlsen as it's already over.
Aug-26-06  slomarko: Xaurus are u scandinavian?
Aug-26-06  Xaurus: <slomarko>Yes, as you can see from my profile. Why?

  IMlday: re: 16..Rad8..~he's thinking about ♔ safety with ♔e7-d7-c8-b8 etc. Personnaly 16..f6 looked like the interesting try against the gambit.
Jan-22-13  Wyatt Gwyon: Andersson was a shot fighter at this point, but 22 moves surprises me.

  Jonathan Sarfati: It's interesting that the Carlsen of recent years reminds us of Andersson at his peak.
Feb-12-16  ndg2: It's not often Andersson gets miniatured like this.
Aug-24-16  dashjon: it is funny reading the early comments and seeing the monster Magnus has become 10 years later.

  maxi: With 19.Rf1 Carlsen set the nasty threat of 20.Nf5+ Kf8 21. Nxg KxN 22.QxN+.

  maxi: After 22.Bg6 Rdf8 Houdini 4 Pro x64 gives a minimal advantage of 0.18. There was no reason to resign.
