The winners are who voted 1. Nf3. There are few of them. I will go thru it after the game. Thanks for voting.
I'm gonna guess nf3 d5 g3 g6 bg2 bg7 d4 c6 maybe. Something along those lines.
Vote closed. Last vote Scottrf. I am late 30 min. So I don't know yet. Let's see the game.
I voted after it started.
I am the winner I Suppose ;-)
There are a few winners. We all expected a sharp game or at least a very good positional game. But Carlsen opened with 1. Nf3.
For the winners, I will send the trophy in a couple of days. I am pretty much preoccupied even during the game.

Sorry, you order it to Domino pizza phone number 111111111. lol.
You are a winner. Wait. Cancelled. Your vote came in when it's closed. Sorry, no trophy.
And the winner is Tao585. Game 1 is tricky with 1. Nf3 opening and lasted only in 16 moves. Tao585, good job.
Trophy sent to Tao585 with a note.
