Jul-21-06  notyetagm: Since the Black queen ends up being trapped and lost on g6, did Movsesian lay a trap and allow 11 ... ♕xg3?

I find it hard to believe that a 2600-rated player like Movsesian could miss this simple <♕g3 BOMBSHELL>, which is a common tactical shot when there is a pin along the a7-g1 diagonal.

Jan-16-07  samikd: <notyetagm> No. Black could have played Bxf3 on move 12 as well 13 and retain a better position. Black's 13th move was a blunder, after which 14.Ne4 would win the Q rightaway. (14..Qg6 15. Nh4). After white's actual move, Black was actually winning. However, he remained unsuspecting and castled on move 15, thereby losing the Q. Instead, 15..Bf3 would be winning for him. So its a game of blunders
