Carlsen's Grand Prix Attacks

In "Aronian Wins Last Amber Chess Tournament" (also at ChessBase), Lubomir Kavalek offers an excellent analysis of Carlsen - Topalov, Monaco 2011, from the recently concluded Amber tournament.  The game saw the Norwegian phenom trotting out the Grand Prix Attack vs the Sicilian, which is a line you do not see a lot of anymore at the highest levels.  In a later game against Anand (discussed in the notes) Carlsen's opening did not fare as well.
