  piltdown man: This guy will never amount to anything.
Mar-05-13  wachter123680: Wow, I have to review my comments of this game, I was too harsh, since Mags was gist 11. But not a bad game for 11. I think 52. moves indicates that he did not make a major tactical detriment compared with the brill. 25 move mates I have scene in different older players.
Aug-02-14  joddon: there always lies some sort of weird weakness on the queen side....magnus always has a strong edge on his king thing is to know what your advantage on the queen side is.....then he can be beaten.

  perfidious: Carlsen was aged nine at the time of this game, contrary to what has been posted here.

As to <Xeroxx: I love 10 year olds.>: that makes this poster a perv.
