|Jul-03-11|| ||scormus: <sackman: Amazing relentless attacking game>
Absolutely, a real blitzkreig
< .... I wonder how black felt during this game.>
I imagine a bit worse than Rafa Nadal this afternoon, but maybe not as bad as David Haye the other night.
|Jul-03-11|| ||DrMAL: 9.Nxb5 is more suitable for blitz or much lower level. 22...gxf5 thematically opens the g-file anyway why would Popov avoid this? Aronian blunders back with 23.Rc5 and Popov blunders again with 23...Ba6 (second chance for gxf5), lousy game!|
|Jul-03-11|| ||WhiteRook48: those are wonderful tactics by Aronian.|
|Jul-03-11|| ||DarthStapler: What happens after 30...Kf8?|
|Jul-03-11|| ||abuzic: <25...Nxe4?> 25...gxf5 may prevent what actually happened in the game. So <25. Kh1> 25. fxg6 keeps white attack.|
|Jul-03-11|| ||DarthStapler: Nevermind, I figured it out|
|Jul-04-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: <Jul-03-11
sackman: Amazing relentless attacking game, 19th century with a modern flavour. All of Aronian's moves seem sensible to me but only with hindsight .... I wonder how black felt during this game.>
Maybe this is not what Black actually thought during the game, but maybe just me sort of thinking out loud:
"WHAT THE HECK IS HAPPENING HERE???"
"Cripes! I have run into a buzz zaw!"
"Bleeping, beeping, bleep!!! &%%#$$** Is this all prepared analysis?"
"Hey REF!!!! I want my opponent checked for PERFORMANCE ENHANCING DRUGS!!!"
|Jul-05-11|| ||kevin86: White will mate very soonest...|
|Sep-04-11|| ||notyetagm: Game Collection: Aronian's Best Games|
Anand said that Aronian plays 1 d4 like a 1 e4 player.
Case in point.
|Feb-02-12|| ||kiiuglik: anything wrong with 10...Bd7 instead of 10...Kf8?|

White has 11.Nxd7 Nbxd7 (or 11...Nfxd7) 12.c6, when moving the ♘d7 allows 13.c7+.
|Jul-08-12|| ||Everett: Aronian is the light-side of Petrosian, or simpy a modern-day Bronstein; his feel for long-term positional sacs of a piece for two pawns, or exchange sac for pawn(s) is absolutely unreal.|
|Jul-09-12|| ||rilkefan: On 20...dxe4 21.d5 is about as good - 21...Bxd5 22.Bxb6 Bxb3 23.c7.|
21.Rc5 is per stockfish just a blunder refuted by ...gxf5. And 25.Kh1 is just equal after ...gxf5.
|Jul-10-12|| ||Everett: <rilkefan> <21.Rc5..> This wasn't played in the game. Did you mean 23.Rc5?|
|Jul-11-12|| ||rilkefan: Oops, yes, thanks.|
|Jul-26-12|| ||kunjankp: this is why we love this game!!sheer class!|
|Sep-18-12|| ||Rob Morrison: As an indication of how completely flummoxed black was, he moved his queen's bishop eight times--to a6, to b7, to c8, to e6, then back to c8, to a6, to c8, and then back to e6.|
|Nov-23-12|| ||fisayo123: rape on the board.|
|Jun-15-13|| ||hedgeh0g: No matter how many showers Black took after this game, he still felt dirty and violated.|
|Dec-21-13|| ||MJCB: rilkefan: On 20...dxe4 21.d5 is about as good - 21...Bxd5 22.Bxb6 Bxb3 23.c7.
MJBC: On 20 dxe4, insn't Ktxg6+ working?|
|Feb-05-14|| ||luzhin: Following my comment in 2009, asking why Aronian didn't play 23.fxg6, I have now seen an interview with Aronian in which he states that on move 22. Black played gxf5 and that "this game appeared in many databases with a serious error". Please take note, Chessgames.com!|
|Feb-21-14|| ||kingscrusher: Blimey, I didn't know Aronian played like this ....|

This is the site with the interview you probably refer to:
(read the lines before the 5th diagram!).
The link on that page leads to the correct game score (with tons of analysis, unfortunately I can't translate the text):
|Jul-30-14|| ||backrank: I have submitted a correction note; now we have to wait if there is any response to it (to my experience, usually there is none).|
|Sep-22-16|| ||fredthebear: After 37...Qxc6 38.Be6 also works; it's a must for White to prevent the Black queen from interposing between check from the White queen.|
