Jan-27-07  russep: 4 wins with kings indian out of 5 games
Jan-27-07  Rocafella: It was already over but 40.Rg5? wth? lol
Jan-27-07  percyblakeney: Another good game with the black pieces by Radjabov, going +4 -0 =3 with them in Corus was impressive. Motylev seemed to be slightly better for a while, but Radjabov gradually took over and in time trouble Motylev fell apart quickly.
Jan-27-07  belgradegambit: Makes one wonder why Radja doesn't open with White: 1. g3, 2. Bg2 Maybe he'd do even better!
Jan-27-07  Ulhumbrus: 28 h4 allows Radjabov to close the King side by 28..g4 but on 28 g3 fxg3 29 Bxg3 Qxf3 is possible. This suggests preparing g3 by protecting f3 by 28 Bc2
Jan-27-07  Ulhumbrus: After 34..Rxf3 Black can be said to control the centre in a way because with the White QB withdrawn and the white f pawn taken, Black can occupy the e5 square at will.
Jan-27-07  Ingolf: Amazing how Radjabov manages to launch a kingside attack even though the enemy king is no longer there.

  Mateo: Motylev played the all game very well until move 33. There is no point to make any serious objection to his play until this point. It may even be said he had the best of it until there.

33. Bxf4 ? <A mistake opening the f file to Black’s advantage, because Black can create a dangerous pinn .> Rf8 34. Bc1 Rxf3 35. Rhg1 <35.b3 to unpinn the Bishop does not work. 35...Rxd3! 36.Rxd3 Qxe4 37.Rh3 Nb4, Black wins. The same after 35.Qa4. Then, 35...Rxd3! 36.Rxd3 Qxe4 37.Rh3 Nb4 winning at least a pawn.> Nb4 <Now, White is lost.> 36. Qxa7 Rg8 37. Qa3 b5 38. e5 Rxd3 39. Rxd3 Qf5 40. Rg5 0-1
