|Sep-29-07|| ||Marmot PFL: I don't play this line but Ng4 and the pawn advances look positionally suspect. I know he played the 4 Knights Sicilian and drew Kasparov so I thought we might see that.|
|Sep-29-07|| ||percyblakeney: The transmission seems to be stuck.|
|Sep-29-07|| ||percyblakeney: Apparently it was Grischuk that was stuck.|
|Sep-29-07|| ||Sneaky: I think all this works out very well for White. Not enough compensation for a piece.|
|Sep-29-07|| ||THE pawn: Rc6?? Woups...time trouble struck. It's over.|
|Sep-29-07|| ||percyblakeney: Not many moves left now.|
|Sep-29-07|| ||benveniste: Will we see two dancing rooks at the top of the page, or just a bigger one?|
|Sep-29-07|| ||THE pawn: Eh, why not just xd5?|

It seems black has done OK in this line. Certainly, Kasparov and Topalov have had success with it.
|Sep-29-07|| ||acirce: I'm very glad Svidler gets a win.|
|Sep-29-07|| ||Sneaky: Black is trying as hard as he can for counterplay, but with just one piece he doesn't have enough muscle.|
|Sep-29-07|| ||TheBB: <benveniste> I wondered that myself. How will <CG> solve this dilemma??|
|Sep-29-07|| ||tpstar: Black was hoping for 41. Nc2 Rd7 42. Bc3?? Rd1#.
The position at Move 38 is a nice example demonstrating the power of centralized pieces.
Great game by Svidler.
|Sep-29-07|| ||GoldenKnight: Well, at least the Kramnik - Topalov debates should be over for awhile. I hope Anand wins the match, too. That would make his WC indisputable. My congratulations to him.|
|Sep-29-07|| ||Nepa Pugna: Good Game, Good tournament.|
|Sep-29-07|| ||supertimchan: Why 30...Rc6? This just lost without a fight. Isn't 30...Re7 better?|
|Sep-30-07|| ||willychess: I think itīs unwise of grischuk part think that svidler would repeat the line he played against Topalov without a preparation. itīs remind me a game Keres-Botvinnik when Keres did exactly the same (repeating a line previusly played in Mikenas-Botvinnik)|
|Sep-30-07|| ||whiteshark: <I asked him to refute the Najdorf and he did.>|
"In this last round Svidler scored his first win but he wasnt that proud of it. His victory was based on a strong novelty (Rc1), copyright of his second Alexander Motylev. Svidler gave him all the credits during the press conference. <I asked him to refute the Najdorf and he did.>"
|Sep-30-07|| ||djmercury: This is a strong claim coming from Svidler.|
|Oct-01-07|| ||hnishy: In fact, 20.Rc1 is mentioned in the San Luis tournament book as "very strong" (instead of 20.Qb3 played in Svidler - Topalov). When Svidler played Rc1 quickly, Grischuk sunk into thought....he was not prepared, it seems.|
|Oct-01-07|| ||acirce: <I asked him to refute the Najdorf and he did.> That's what I call a good assistant.|
|Oct-02-07|| ||Resignation Trap: Grischuk thinking about his 12th move: http://russiachess.org/images/stori... .|
|Oct-19-10|| ||chessenthus: I remember seeing the analysis of this game in ICC website.The GM who analysed this game said in the video that Grischuk took exactly 51 minutes to play 20...Bxc1!|
|Sep-16-11|| ||scormus: 20 Rc1. Cool move!|
|Sep-22-11|| ||Richard Taylor: I saw Svidler Topalov live so I asked an opponent in correspondence to play this line as White. (I play both sides of this argument.) Now he played 19. Kc1 and won. That is in fact what my computer recommends and seems to be much better for White. |
I'll check it through now I didn't use a computer at the time.
