|Jun-12-08|| ||Microdot: Instead of 25.fxg5?, 25.hxg5! was 100% winnig for Morozevich, for example after 25.hxg5!,Rxf4(force) 26.Bxf4,Qxf4 27.Rbe1
What a pitty.
By the way I remember this beautiful rapid game by Morozevich against sargissian
"In mainz 2006, Ordix open Morozevich outplayed Sarggisian in their rapid game. It was a beautiful closed Giuoco Piano" [Event "Mainz Ordix op 13th"]

|Jun-13-08|| ||arsen387: Wow, after this win Sargissian is +2 =1 -1 against Moro. Well done. |
<Microdot> in your 25.hxg5!,Rxf4(force) 26.Bxf4,Qxf4 27.Rbe1 line why is Rxf4 forced? 26..Rf8 seems playable to me.
|Jun-13-08|| ||Gilmoy: <arsen387: 25.hxg5 Rf8> 26.g6 <mate threat> Qd8 27.Qh3 Bh4 28.Qxe6+ Kh8 29.Qg4 .|
|Jun-13-08|| ||arsen387: Oh, great, missed that. thanks <Gilmoy>. But then what if 25.hxg5 Rg6? it prevents g6. Sorry if it's even easier but I can't see the win|
|Jun-13-08|| ||kellmano: <arsen> After 25.......Rg6, i think 26. Bh5 would be annoying for black.|
|Jun-13-08|| ||arsen387: damn, sometimes I miss such obvious things, that any patzer would see. Thanks <kellmano>. I of course thought a while about attacking the R with the LSB, but tried to do that from b1-h7 diagonal which wasn't effective and completely missed Bh5. I think I must quit chess for some time...|
