Feb-22-09  khursh: I like white's ♖ & ♘ maneuver from move 49 till move 60 winning a pawn eventually!
Feb-22-09  Bondsamir: Aronian has all the glimpses of Kasparov when the latter was leading his way to dominate the world of chess.
Feb-22-09  Woody Wood Pusher: Wow Aronian is really becoming a monster!

What tenacity!

Now all he needs to do is stop giving ridiculous interviews...

Great game by Aronian, though by move 49 the game is practically won.

Rybka gives 3 continuations with values greater than 1.4, preferring Nf5+ (1.57) to the game's continuation Rh7+ (1.47). The most direct way to win the pawn is Ne4 Ned4, Bxd4 exd4, Rxf6 (1.41).

  An Englishman: Good Evening: I'm trying to figure out where Dominguez-Perez might have gone wrong; it is *not* easy. Currently, I'm focusing on two moves.

14...Ba6; 15.Bxa6,Rxa6 takes the Rook off the eighth rank, so that after 16.Nd3!, Black's Bishop retreat to d6 would have allowed White to play Rac1 and take over the c-file. Perhaps 14...Bb7 instead?

16...Ne5 allows Black's Queen side to be shattered. Was this forced? What of 16...Ne8 or 16...Rc8 or 16...Raa8?

Feb-23-09  manethos: At move 50 Nh5 would have won a lot faster for white...

  Garech: I think this was purely a badly played game by Domininguez; it looks like he didn't know the opening at all well, Aronian had strong advantage right from the word go.

DrGridlock,
Fritz 4.1 gives 49.♘f5+ & 49.♘e4 as both a 2.25+ advantage.
