While browsing, I came upon this game between Carlsen (NOR) and Bu (CHN). It was not typical of Carlsen I think. In any case, I found it to be interesting game.

I noticed Kingscrusher has a Youtube video of the game, "Mega-exciting Chess game." Check it out if you do Youtube. The game is also in British Chess Magazine, October, 2017, with annotations.

Played at Tbilisi. The event was the World Cup 2017. Played on 2017-09-09. The 3rd round. Carlsen's rating at the time, 2822; Bu, 2710.
