Jan-22-04  Hidden Skillz: unescapable for wely..what a game by bologan!!..
Jan-22-04  PinkPanther: Its only a shame that van Wely didn't play this poorly against Adams, but I guess that is just poor Mickey's luck.
Jan-23-04  aulero: Bologan had to figure out 21... ♘a5 several moves before. So I'm inclined to think that he set a formidable trap. Perhaps it was opening preparation.

van Wely lost the game playing 20.♖d6: he thought to gain a pawn, instead he fell into the trap.

<PinkPanther>, I totally disagree. If van Wely played poorly here, then he played poorly also in the game Van Wely vs Adams, 2004 (see it for comments). Both games contain only ONE van Wely's very clear weak move: it was up to Adams to exploit the error. I cannot certainly consider <just poor Mickey's luck> what "poor luck" is not: the move missed by Adams was incredibly simpler to find than the sofisticated Bologan's plan.
