Apr-10-06  Montreal1666: What a nice win by Ivanchuk. Black thought the mate threat is enough compensation for the bishop, but Ivanchuk proved him wrong.
Apr-11-06  notyetagm: Paraphrasing a similar analysis I saw on one time:

37 ♕xf8+! take my queen
37 ... ♔h7 I don't want it
38 ♕xg7+! take it, damn it

Both 37 ♕xf8+! and 38 ♕xg7+! are <decoys> into a <discovered attack with check>, made possible by the blunder 36 ... ♕e4?, lining up the Black queen with the White e1-rook. Once the Black king is forced onto a dark square (either f8 or g7), the White dark-squared e3-bishop will move off of the e-file with check (♗c5+ or ♗h6+) and White will follow with ♖x♕.

Apr-11-06  LoFarkas: Someone wrote in the Euro Champs forum something like "yes, nice tactics at the end, but it was all over by then anyway". Zat so? Can anyone show me a win for white after move 30 or 31?
Apr-12-06  Capa15: 37. White to move would make a great puzzle of the day!
