Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-11-08  SetNoEscapeOn: A nice defensive effort by Karjakin, played in the style of Anand.

Ugly, ugly, ugly... simply up a piece.

Aug-11-08  randzo: very poor sacriface by Svidler and another game which he lost in the opening i dont understand why he played d4 since he is clear e4 player and to the sacriface it looks good 2 pawns for a Knight and check but his pieces were undeveloped and unable to attack bad position of black king.After 17.a3 only qeen is really playing and as once lasker said :white was not so good in the center to start (kingside) attack olso Karjakin defended very good .
Aug-11-08  messachess: Well, yes, nice defense. As far as the advisability of the sac., Svidler is a top rank GM. That means his chess decisions are informed by a fairly high level of understanding. He just couldn't break through the tough defense.
Aug-11-08  messachess: It shows the factor that chance plays even in the highest level chess.
Aug-12-08  acirce: Well, it seems that 19..Ne6 was a very strong improvement on Radjabov vs Leko, 2008 - one that was suggested by Radjabov right after that game, btw.
