  ahmadov: I think Aronian has substantially improved his game over the last six years. Otherwise, there is no justification for such a bad play. Black's 40....a5 is really very strange. Aronian must have been under serious time pressure to play this.

  technical draw: Also, Paragua was 16 yrs old when he played this.
Feb-25-07  aazqua: I agree. Black should simply have reigned at move 40. What move would you have suggested ahmad? Black was down the exchange with a vastly inferior position. White just played a great game here.
May-10-07  jellyace: What if Aronian countered Bxh6 with 18. ... f5 19. Bxg7 fxe4 20. Bh6 exd3, etc.? Although his Kingside position weakens, I think he should survive any attack with careful play.
May-13-07  knights.templar: hi to all of you guys!
May-13-07  ounos: Doesn't 25 ... Bg7 win easily?
Jan-02-09  Ychromosome: <ounos> Good observation with 25...Bg7, but this is a false skewer. It gives a slight advantage to white after 26.Rad1 (Bxe5 27.Rxd7 Nxc4 is worse according to mr. computer) Qe8 27.Qf4 is a solid advantage for white.

Is anything wrong with 17...f5? Aronian played 17...Nde7. I thought he had been preparing for f5 with Re7-Rd7
