Carlsen lost no Anish Giri

When I saw the result, I was struck!
Then, when I looked at the number of moves made, my jaw dropped.
I think Carlsen underestimated Anish's excellent calculation.
We all knew how good Anish is in preparation. He had a photographic memory, I believe.

Maybe that's why Carlsen was looking for a novelty when he played 11. Qd2
It was a weird move. But major mistake is 19. Rd1

By the way, Anish's response of 14. a3 with cxd5 was awesome!

I'm still a Carlsen's fan though.
