  Whitehat1963: An excellent and fun game to play through. I can't help feeling that there are opportunities missed on both sides, but, of course, I don't see exactly where.
May-31-06  dehanne: Moro's shenanigans backfired for once.
Dec-15-06  Gowe: Enjoy. This is the video of the final moves. Is worth looking.
Feb-27-08  Knight13: Morozevich is still better than Sargissian.
Feb-27-08  hovik2003: Sorry!, you are wrong Mickey, this game happened in real life and it shows they are about equal. They had two games against eachother, and final score is (+1 -1 0=), the other game is: Morozevich vs G Sargissian, 2002

Feb-27-08  slomarko: they are about equal? hahaha comical, Moro is 100x better.
Mar-02-08  hovik2003: <slomarko>
So Moro must be 100% retarded to lose a very important game like this to a player 100x worse than him, because of this game Russia tied 2-2 against Armenia and didn't even win a medal in the last olympics, and in contrary Armenia with the help of Sargissian's super performance won the Turin Olympics Gold medals in a cakewalk, great job by Armenian team!

  IMlday: I recall watching this game live. 7.Na3! seemed particularly profound. Maybe 12..Qb6 improves. After 12..Qa5 13.b4! is pleasant for White.
Mar-05-08  Riverbeast: So <hovik2003>, now that you have revealed yourself as Gabriel Sargissian, can you comment on this game for us?
Mar-09-08  hovik2003: <Riverbeast>
I am a modest guy!, so I hate to brag about and overrate my achivements. By the way I should admit that Moro is little better than me!!
Mar-09-08  hovik2003: Sargissian's winner trump was 13.b4!, now black can't play 13...Nxb4? because of 14.Bd2, so Moro's forced reply 13...cxb4 doesn't help his position much either after 14.Rb1, seems like that Moro overlooked the fact that he can't take on a2 pawn by his queen when he played 12...Qa5 and wasn't expecting b4 and its follow up Rb1 at all!, so he started playing aimlessly and kind of head lost.

Later in the game in the same section of the board Morozevich made the decisive mistake by playing 26...c5??, granting white a dangerous passed d-pawn and the score of the game. Graet game by Gabriel Sargissian!
