Jul-11-07  MadBishop: A wonderful queenside attack by Ivanchuck, coupled with a well-timed exchange sacrifice to add the necessary pressure to push his queenside space advantage brings home the full point in the first round of a tournament he goes on to win!
Jul-13-07  Paul123: Wow! nice game by Ivanchuk. He's turned that QGA into a serious weapon. About ten years ago he was a force...Looks like he's regaining his form....

I like the fact that a lot of these guys are now comming out of the wood work after Kasparov retired.
