Apr-17-17  Timi: Terrible
Apr-24-17  yureesystem: Carlsen king move 7.Kd1 is remarkable, it put a question to 5...Bxb1, give up a develop bishop for undeveloped knight on b1 and follow it up with 6...Bb4+, another great move by Carlsen is Qxb1 able his King to go to d1 instead Ke2, black is the one who needs to be careful, why? Because black bishop ( Bb4) is endanger of being trap by pawn to c5 follow up a3.

Jul-10-18  Justin796: Ben Finegold is a GM? TERRIBLE
Mar-24-20  Justin796: The way ben lines up his bishop and his pawn perfectly for an attack on the c file is inexcusable. Carlsen may be great but why make it easy for Magnus?

Yeah, just the worst player ever.

by the bye: have you made 1200 yet?

Mar-24-20  Granny O Doul: I remember Finegold's favorite move being Qc2, because "it always wins something". Carlsen turns his opponent's own weapons against him.

  perfidious: Delicious.

Did not occur to me at the time, but this is, so far as I know, my first Carlsen-2, my one encounter with Finegold coming before his redoubtable opponent was even born.
