|Jan-29-11|| ||HeMateMe: Lahno at +4, perhaps B group next year.|
|Jan-30-11|| ||ketchuplover: Vocaturo testing Nyzhnyk's nerves with 27.Bxh5|
|Jan-30-11|| ||ketchuplover: Nyzhnyk in time trouble :(|
|Jan-30-11|| ||Eyal: It looks like Vocaturo miscalculated and he might be actually losing now; he shouldn't have a perpetual (or a win) after 29...axb4 30.Bxg6, which I suppose is what he's planning - but of course anything can happen in time trouble.|
|Jan-30-11|| ||Kazzak: I'm not too unhappy with Nyzhnyk's position here.

|Jan-30-11|| ||ketchuplover: Nyzhnyk can't handle the pressure :(|
|Jan-30-11|| ||Eyal: After 32.Nxd6+:

Nyzhnyk should be accurate now and play 32...Kxg6 rather than 32...Bxd6? which allows a draw after 33.Qh5 Nf6 34.Rxf6! Kxf6 35.Qh6+ with perpetual.
|Jan-30-11|| ||ketchuplover: it's gonna be a draw :(|
|Jan-30-11|| ||crazybird: <I'm not too unhappy with Nyzhnyk's position here.>|
I guess your hunch was right...
|Jan-30-11|| ||Kazzak: We'll see - they'll play on.
Nyzhnyk had him, and is going to hate the fact.
But Nyzhnyk's playing is at another level entirely, and he'll put together a wall of chess, given a little time.
|Jan-30-11|| ||siamesedream: Nyzhnyk spoiled his chance. Hope they will invite him to B group anyway.|
Congratulations to Daniele Vacaturo!
|Jan-30-11|| ||Eyal: It's simply a perpetual, there's no play left after 32...Bxd6. Not that 32...Kxg6 was so simple - after 33.Qe4+ Black has to play the king to h6 and allow Nf7+ winning the queen; but Black has so much material already that he could afford it, at least he could keep playing for a win even if it's not trivial.|
|Jan-30-11|| ||ketchuplover: congrats to Vocaturo. good luck in class B next year. good show by Illya. see ya next year.|
|Jan-30-11|| ||randyjohnson: AWESOME!|
|Jan-30-11|| ||Kazzak: Imagine if Nyzhnyk had found the winning Queen sacrifice - he would have been the hero of Wijk.|
|Jan-30-11|| ||moroloser: Eyal is always right, thx God. Great tournament by Vocaturo but I agree with <Kazzak> here, the russian kid will be a much better player in a very short time. I believe both deserve B group next year.|
|Jan-30-11|| ||Peligroso Patzer: < *** the russian kid will be a much better player in a very short time. *** >|
Actually, Nyzhnyk is Ukranian.
|Jan-30-11|| ||KingG: What a shame for Nyzhnyk. Nevermind, in a couple of years he will probably be playing in the A group.|
|Jan-30-11|| ||laskereshevsky: After all Nyzhnyk not deserved to win the tournament, basically cause He had a BIG Chance to do it, But didnt handled the pressure in a properly way.... |
I mean ♔xg6 in place of ♘xd6 much probably is a winning line.....
But this is not a shame, after all is still more a child then a teenager...:)

Celebration to Vocaturo.... All in All the worthy winner
|Jan-30-11|| ||laskereshevsky: Found in an Italian chess-site this picture in an editorial to celebrate the Voc. victory:|
|Jan-30-11|| ||YouRang: Woo hoo! I had 100 chessbucks on Vocaturo. Sheer luck -- I liked his name.|
|Jan-30-11|| ||Bdellovibrio: Sachdev, the lowest rated player in the field, finished even, and was one of only three players to beat the leader.|
|Jan-31-11|| ||Kanatahodets: To call Nizhnik a Russian is the same as call French guy a British.|
|Jan-31-11|| ||BobCrisp: Some of those French guys were called Kings of England.|
|Feb-01-11|| ||moroloser: <Kanatahodets> Yes ok, deeply sorry about it, I've called the guy "russian" because I honestly thought that was his nationality and not because I don't know the difference between Russia and Ukraina as you seem to assume... But anyway thanks for your little lesson.|
