  agb2002: <Eyal: ... Yeah, this looks pretty much forced. A few more forced moves: 32...Ba3 33.Nxd2 Bxc1 34.Be3 and we get this> Very nice!
Jan-30-09  Ulhumbrus: <agb2002: <Ulhumbrus: <agb2002: 27.bxc3 bxc3 28.Qa4 and now what?> On 28...Qxa4 29 Qxa4 c2 there is a nasty threat of ...Ba3. The interesting thing is that here too White is able to force an exchange of Queens but then gets into teouble.> Yes, I have just seen 27.bxc3 bxc3 28.Qa4 Qxa4 29.Nxa4 c2 30.Rc1 Re2 31.Nc3 Rd2 32.Ne4 Ba3 33.Nxd2 Bxc1 34.Nb3 Bf4 and Black ends up with a pawn ahead.> On 27 bc bc 28 Qa4 Qxa4 29 Nxa4 c2 30 Rc1 I had in mind 30...Rc8. After 30...Rc8 Black threatens ...Bf4 as well as ...Ba3
Jan-30-09  Mateo: 28...Qc7 seems like the only move, as the ending is an easy win for White.
Jan-30-09  Woody Wood Pusher: Rc8 or Qc7!? now look OK for Black

  Marmot PFL: Both players have about 40+ mins for 15 moves so that factor is =. I think black will have a hard fight to draw this now that white is getting coordinated.
Jan-30-09  Ulhumbrus: 28 Qd5 improves on 28 Qa4 in one respect: After 28...Qxd5 29 Nxd5 c2 30 Rc1 Rc8 White can attack the c2 pawn at once by 31 Ne3, giving Black no ime for ...Ba3 or ..Bf4.

White has a nice win here by 31.Nc5! or Bc5!

Jan-30-09  Woody Wood Pusher: 29.Qd3,c2 30.Rc1,Bxh2 31.Rxc2,Qd6 and Black is still holding IMO.

Nice spot!

  An Englishman: Good Afternoon: Aronian still manages to toss a few obstacles in White's way. Aside from the threat to h2, the Rook's penetration to e2 (with another threat in ...Bc5) is cause for concern.

Yea its a great game all right. I hope Aronian gets at least the draw!

Jan-30-09  Ulhumbrus: 29 Qd3 prepares Nd5.
Jan-30-09  shorsman: A Dom victory here would blow the tournament wide open, especially if Carlsen wins again.
Jan-30-09  benjinathan: <I hope Aronian gets at least the draw!>

I wonder which, a draw or a loss, would have a more positive impact on the remaining games in the tournament.

Jan-30-09  Mateo: 29.Qd3 gives the Queen a good square : control of e2 (impeding Re2), a6, c3, c2, d6.
Jan-30-09  Woody Wood Pusher: <mateo><Uhlm> I called Qd3, stop infringing my copyright!

hahaha

Jan-30-09  Woody Wood Pusher: 29.Nc4....I hope that isn't another blunder Dom for your sake!

  chessic eric: just arrived...so 20...Bxg2 was an error by Aronian? If 21...Rxe8, 22.Qg4 follows?

  PinnedPiece: Odd that D-P is willing to give up his H pawn....

Jan-30-09  Mateo: At least, after 29...Bxh2, Aronian would have 3 pawns for the Knight. But the c3 pawn looks more like a target than a weapon. So White would still have the best of it.
Jan-30-09  popski: Well, 29.Nc4 looks at least ugly... :/
Jan-30-09  benjinathan: The problem with Bxh2 is that the back rank starts look weaker because there are more open files. I think.

  Domdaniel: I looked at this Nc4 idea a few minutes ago. If ...Bxh2 white gets the h-file for an attack, but I don't see anything crushing. And white is running out of pawns to win with.
