So nice to see Carlsen playing a so-called "refuted" line like the Dragon.
Fischer is the greatest player of all time
Greatest player of all times? The guy in my photo would laugh...
Epic game! I've never actually played the Dragon or any other variant from the black side myself but I'm tempted to try a few to see if it suits my style, brilliant lesson thanks!
With all due respect to Mr. Kiewra but Carlsen isn't the greatest player in history. That might change in a couple of years... Maybe. But only time will tell.
Very much enjoying this series.. Many thanks!
why doesnt white ever use his knight so sac for that pawn?
Carlsen plays Dragon... hes so cool...
