Feb-24-09  ajile: Rg3+ nighty night
Feb-24-09  messachess: My intuition is that black has the advantage.
Feb-24-09  ajile: aww Black missed it.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Check It Out: he missed it!
Feb-24-09  ajile: Rc7+ probably saves White.
Feb-24-09  percyblakeney: Radjabov has been putting Dominguez under pressure but the best thing he can get seems to be a drawn endgame that engines call +1 something.
Premium Chessgames Member
  beenthere240: I'm sure black considered Rg3+ on the way to Rg2. It (or something more deadly) will be played soon.
Feb-24-09  Marmot PFL: Andrew Karklins once said most draws occur not because of over-caution or lack of ambition but through missed opportunities.
Feb-24-09  percyblakeney: <a drawn endgame that engines call +1 something>

Or -1 something in this case since Radjabov is black.

Feb-24-09  ajile: Radj had him cold. Bummer. Now White probably escapes with a draw.
Feb-24-09  messachess: going to perpetual--
Feb-24-09  ajile: sad.....
Premium Chessgames Member
  Check It Out: draw. That's heartbreaking for Rad
Feb-24-09  messachess: What about Kd7.
Feb-24-09  ajile: These guys must be very tired though.
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: Dominguez probably very happy managing not to lose that.
Feb-24-09  ajile: Thanks for the live games.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Check It Out: Rg3+ seemed easy to spot. I can't imagine why he passed it up
Feb-24-09  Ulhumbrus: If Black's Black's R can gobble up the a and c3 pawns, and then go to c4, with the a pawn on a2 and White's R on a8, Black has the move ...Rc4-a4 obstructing White's Rook on a8.
Feb-24-09  suenteus po 147: Yeah! all draws today!
Feb-24-09  percyblakeney: At least Radjabov has started to play better, this was a good effort with black even if it wasn't enough to win in the end.
Premium Chessgames Member Remember, no Topalov-Kamsky game tomorrow; the match continues on Thursday at 8:00am (USA/Eastern). Hope to see everybody back! Bye for now.
Feb-24-09  AuN1: white never even got a sniff of an attack U_U
Feb-24-09  OneArmedScissor: Just give Radjabov the black pieces every single round.
