  1. Carlsen 2015 nicht so in der Form wie 2013/2014, sehr lehrreich und im Endeffekt " einfach " für Topalov. Carlsen hat nie genug Gegenspiel bekommen für sein Opfer am Anfang.

  2. Thank you for this one and for Aronian game likewise. We appreciate your work.

  3. Yes, thanks also. I love your videos. I wish I knew German, so I could watch all of them. Big fan here in Connecticut 👍🏻

  4. Great video, thank you "Quick Nick" ,-)
    You motivates me for the upcoming season 🙂

  5. thanks for covering this tournament. where did u find the interview with maurice ashley? nothing at the hp

  6. 10:42 can't white sacrifice two moves and move towards the bishop to alleviate the pin? 11:23 Is it only equal because of the lack of progress white's pieces have made? Last one, I promise – 14:08 could carlsen have put up b3 ?

  7. Darauf habe ich lange gewartet: eine Partie, bei der ein Spieler ohne Rochade spielt und gewinnt. Und das dann noch von Topalow 🙂
