|Sep-09-06|| ||Tabanus: Regarding 10...h6 (to stop Bg5) Susan Polgar said "there is no time for this move". But it seems that after 11.Qf3 black can play b5, followed by d6, and white will be left with a bad bishop at b3. The attack on e7 and f7 can be parried by Bg7-f6 and Kf8-g7. |

In any case, 10. ... h6 did not exactly succeed in rendering White's QB ineffective. Half a dozen moves later, with that piece established on the monster a3-f8 diagonal, I doubt Carlsen was saying to himself, "Lucky thing I took measures to prevent Bg5."
All-in-all, this game was a marvellous attacking gem by Svidler.
|Sep-22-06|| ||beenthere240: Gulko says that Black can escape with 15...Kf8, where White must settle for a perpetual check, but that it would have been very hard to find OTB. The game was played with time limit of an hour for all moves.
Also 10...h6 was successful in another game where white played Re1 instead of Qf3.
But what to pull out of seemingly nowhere!|
|Oct-14-06|| ||Tabanus: Nice game by Svidler. I think though that after 11...b5, and later d6, black may even play for a win.|
|Mar-08-07|| ||Brown: <Tabanus> After 11...b5 12.d6 Bb7 13.Qxf7+ Kxf7 14.Bg3 and dxc7, white looks good. What line were you seeing?|
<beenthere240> Did Gulko say anything specific after the obvious 15...Kf8 16.Bd6+ Kg8 17.Re7 f5 18.Qd5+ Kh7 19.Qf7 Rg8 20.Be4 ?

15...Kf8 16.Bd6+ Kg8 17.Re7 f5. Now 18.Qd5+ is not possible. There is a white pawn on d5!|
|Mar-08-07|| ||Brown: <somitra> That's a very good point!|

|Jan-04-09|| ||psmith: <Brown>
15...♔f8 16.♗d6+ ♔g8 17.♖e7 f5 loses to 18. ♕g3 g5 19. ♖xg7+! ♔xg7 20. ♕e5 and mates (thanks to Fritz 5.32).
Gulko's line must be something like 15...♔f8 16.♗d6+ ♔g8 17.♖e7 ♔h7 18. ♕xf7 ♖g8 19. ♗e5 ♕xc2 20. ♕xg7+ ♖xg7 21. ♖xg7+ with perpetual.
|Dec-02-09|| ||bondll: What is Svidler's idea by 26. Kf1?|
|Jan-26-10|| ||cybernaut: An exciting game between former world number 3, Svidler and the 15 yr old prodigy Magnus Carlsen.|
|Jan-26-10|| ||mysql: Who won this match?|
|Jan-26-10|| ||cybernaut: Svidler.
And here's the prophetic words from Susan Polgar:
"Ultimately in this game, experience prevailed over youth. But I am quite confident that we will hear of a lot more Magnus' successes for many years to come."
|Jan-26-10|| ||acirce: Brave prediction that. When almost everyone assumed that Carlsen would never amount to anything, Susan alone had the courage to go against the flow.|
|Feb-20-17|| ||razetime: Beautifully done game by Svidler. Rxe7!! was beautiful. A move that caused the utter destruction of Carlsen.|
|Feb-20-17|| ||WannaBe: Aright, start the music, I'm in the mood for some horns, and it better be <LOUD>!! |
Loud enough to wake up your neighbours (whom probably have no idea what the song is...)
|Feb-20-17|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Turns out that Black can play 8...Qc5 and survive with sufficient care. But I do feel a bit puzzled that Black defenders never play 9...b5 immediately. Any particular reason?|
|Feb-20-17|| ||The Kings Domain: Was this played in 2006 or 1856? Charming retro game. I never knew Svidler had it in him.|
|Feb-20-17|| ||offramp: When all the knights have left the board all the chessiness has gone and we're left with a mathematical exercise.|

A typically withering comment from the great Acirce. In the days before cg.com was populated by the beautiful people it was he that really tied the room together. I wonder where he is now?
|Feb-20-17|| ||HeMateMe: this looks like something from Pandolfini's book of opening swindles, "200 Zaps and Traps."|
|Feb-20-17|| ||Sally Simpson: Hi Offramp,
The Polgar prediction is well known, as is Svidler himself saying round about the same time that both Carlsen and Karjakin would one day be playing a World Championship Final.
Does anyone know of any 'he will amount to nothing' type comments in print.
Pretty sure I'm not guilty. The only player I ever predicted who would amount to nothing was me! (I hate being right all the time.)
But not as bad as Botvinnik "this boy knows nothing about chess" when referring to a young Karpov.
|Feb-20-17|| ||offramp: Acirce was being hugely sarcastic. I have checked on the internet and on the Huskisson Scale of Sarcasm his post rates an impressive 83.9!|
I don't think anyone in 2006 thought that Carlsen was going nowhere.
