Nov-02-07  Riverbeast: Morozevich wins, not with his usual creativity, but in the clear cut style of Capablanca.

Strikes again! Can anybody stop the man??

  tamar: 32 Ba8 is a great move, just eluding the reach of Black's pieces

As a big Morozevich fan, I was very glad to see him win in this style against such a strong player like Radjabov.

  al wazir: This game should have been drawn. Black delayed bringing his ♔ to the center until it was too late.
Nov-03-07  ahmadov: <al wazir: This game should have been drawn. Black delayed bringing his to the center until it was too late.> It is easy to kibitz... I think Moro won this deservedly...
Nov-03-07  ahmadov: According to this database, Teimour Radjabov beat Alexander Morozevich 4 to 3, with 5 draws...
Nov-03-07  kuna65: 3:1 for Moro in classical games, I believe. Radjabov is just better rapid player.
Nov-03-07  ahmadov: <kuna65: 3:1 for Moro in classical games, I believe. Radjabov is just better rapid player.> You well might be correct... Unfortunately, the statistics do not specify whether the games are rapid or classical...
Nov-03-07  babywizard: A good win by Morozevich. It has surely been a while since the Sveshnikov appears in a super-GM game.
Nov-04-07  pacelli: Moro made it look classy. The game flows with the ease of a good story.
Nov-06-07  MuradJ: I think Radjabov had chances to win if he would play 42...Bd3 instead of a4 and kill white pawns just with bishop. One of black pawns should be converted in Queen one move faster than white one.
Nov-06-07  Riverbeast: <I think Radjabov had chances to win if he would play 42...Bd3 instead of a4 and kill white pawns just with bishop. >

Looking at that line in my head, I think if 42...Bd3 43. Kxh4 Bb1 44. Kg5 Bxa2 45. Bd1 a4 46. bxa4 b3 47. Kxf4 b2 48. Bc2 b1(Q) 49. Bxb1 Bxb1 50. g4 white wins. Black's king has to get white's passed 'a' pawn, after which white cuts the black's king off the kingside and overpowers the bishop with the two passed pawns.

Nov-07-07  MuradJ: To Riverbeast
I mentioned about this line: 42. Bf3 Bd3 43. Kxh4 Bb1 44. Kg4 Bxa2 45. Kxf4 Bxb3 46. g4 a4 47. Be4 a3 48. Bb1 Bc2 49. Ba2 b3 0-1
But your line is much more realistic.
