  alexmagnus: Nice one, especially for a blindfold game. Pity it's one move too long for my game collection...
Oct-19-07  Shams: you know, I think this Norwegian kid has some talent. Polgar was simply cut to pieces.
Oct-20-07  Rolfo: <alexmagnus> No chance for an exeption?

  alexmagnus: Not foe the "Carlsen's winning miniatures" collection. Maybe into the "Other games" one. It's a good game, but a blindfold game, can't qualify for the "Best games" collection...

that was impressive . He has total confidence even against a great like polgar.

  tamar: 12 c5!? is hard to evaluate, inviting Judit to enter the labyrinth with 12...Qxb2 13 Bxf6 Qxc3 14 Qg4 g6 15 Qg5 e4 16 Bxd4 Qxd4 17 Rfd1 f6

This obvious path may hold, but Magnus may have seen the deeper move found by Chess Today GM Golubov 14 Rc1! disrupting the battery of Queen and bishop on the long diagonal

if 14...Qb4 15 a3! Qxa3 16 Qg4 wins
if 14...Qb2 15 Qg4 g6 16 Rc4 Qd2 17 Qh4 h5 and it can be seen that Black is unable to develop

Nov-19-09  jmboutiere: 12...Qc5 + 1.05; 12...Qb2 - 0.12
Today he has a great confidence, he is the world youngest blitz champion, more than 2 points ahead Anand
Nov-19-09  jmboutiere: Carlsen 31/42
Anand 28/42
Dec-16-10  jmboutiere: Carlsen won yesterday London Chess Classics, in the presence of Anand and Kramnik, he is ranked nr.1 FIDE GM. I met him in Romania at Bazna Chess Tournament in june 2010. He is amazing as a player and a person. Congrat.

  GM Igor Smirnov: I've prepared a video with complete analysis of this game. You'll definitely learn a lot from this video -

  ChessHigherCat: I get the impression Carlsen complicated everything as much as possible to confuse Polgar because he doesn't give a damn whether the board is there or not. He probably grew up playing games without a board in the car all the time with his Dad or something.
