Oct-24-08  Billy Vaughan: This is one of the dudes that randomly beat Kasparov.
Oct-24-08  Bobsterman3000: LOL. He still has a negative record against Kasparov, even despite this stinker:

Huzman vs Kasparov, 2003

Oct-24-08  arsen387: at least he played bravely. Not every 2590 player would have the audacity to sac a piece against Carlsen
Oct-24-08  Bobsterman3000: <arsen> Yes, you are right about that. Huzman played this one with a lot of heart and courage, but he was just overmatched...

Oct-24-08  orio24: Only a lousy or an excellent player can play move like 17.-♔d7!!?

  tamar: This is Magnus' version of the Bourne Supremacy.

His King walks straight into the path of all his assassins, gets beaten back to the edge, then walks back out into the open untouched.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Nice little defensive gem by Carlsen. Nonetheless, this is exactly how you should play against vastly superior players--take the battle to them and plunge into the wildest complications you can find.

They might blunder first.

Oct-24-08  PinnedPiece: 22 Rxc6 ??

Who blundered first?

What was he thinking?

Oct-24-08  ontocaustic: seems like 29. Qb6+ was worth a try
Apr-02-09  returnoftheking: I would not be suprised if 17Kd7 is theory. In that case only lousy, excellent, and well prepared players could play a move like that.
