Oct-28-06  MarvinTsai: 16.f4 is a tactical inaccuracy. But black has its own fault too: 23 .. Rd8. Finally the blunder 28. Re4 finish the game. Bacrot seems to be emotionally unstable.
Oct-28-06  ronaldducalang: Instead of 28 Re4??
What should white have moved?
Oct-28-06  setebos: Poor Bacrot. It must be hard to fulfill your destiny in a world full of prodigies.

  ahmadov: One can feel from the inaccuracies that it is eather a rapid or blitz. I do not think that Bacrot would make these inaccuracies in a normal game.
Oct-28-06  lordazol4: why 7...d5 is it similiar.
Oct-28-06  lordazol4: Volotikin not win but Bacrot insist to lost

  luzhin: I have some disagreement with the opening classification of this game. I thought the Old Indian was characterised by the development of the Black King's Bishop on e7, the King's Indian by the fianchetto--as happens here. The fact that Black develops his QB on f5 is surely neither here nor there.
Oct-30-06  Sydro: <luzhin> You are right. On the score sheet it says the opening is King's Indian (E61).
