  perfidious: The loutish young upstart is again shown his place: bottom rail's on top!

  whiteshark: One big transformation to archieve the win. In between many small decisions.

  Pedro Fernandez: That pathetic whim of White to exchange his powerful bishop for the knight. That's why I hate Rossolimo and Berlin variations on this context.

  Pedro Fernandez: <<whiteshark>: One big transformation to archieve the win. In between many small decisions.> Reaching the win is the invariant norm of Carlsen, dear <Sharky>.

  WorstPlayerEver: Seems Carlsen has discovered the double fianchetto.
