May-12-08  Xaurus: First game of the Glitnir Blitz tournament 2006 where Magnus won overall
May-12-08  anandrulez: Anand missed 43 g6 move which was clearly winning...comp says final position is draw so i think magnus flagged vishy in blitz !
Apr-30-10  uscfratingmybyear: Drawn?! The black d pawn is on rails bound for a bonafide Hindu reincarnation.
Feb-18-11  jmboutiere: After ten moves black has completely equalised the position, Magnus was 15 years old. Like Anish Giri today.
Feb-18-11  jmboutiere: After 21.Qg4 white is better After20...Nc5 the position is equal
Feb-18-11  jmboutiere: 27.Rh3 better than 27.b4 Rybka 3
32...Kd7 psition equal, after 32...e3 white is better 44.g6 is winning because the atack against the black king after 52.h7 Rh8 53.Rh6 Kf8 54.Kf6 white is better + 3.21 Rybka 3, which is not neccesarly true, but that's what the machine says
Mar-03-12  Atking: <uscfratingmybyear: Drawn?! The black d pawn is on rails bound for a bonafide Hindu reincarnation.> A good sens of humour. But 52.h7 Rh8 53.Rh6 d3 54.Kxe5 (Or 54.Rh1-55.Rd1) 54...d2 55.Rh1 Rxh7 56.Rd1 looks equal. It was a blitz afterall.
