Feb-28-09  arkansaw: yea, I missed Bf4, but the idea is correct after g3
Feb-28-09  Pyrrhus: I got it wrong Smothered King (Flippin' Rybkanots). g3 must be played first to prevent Bf4. Still, I prefer Rc2. Machines will disagree, but then they're machines, and understandably prefer calculation.
Feb-28-09  arkansaw: and a great player like Grischuk sees that too :)
Feb-28-09  Pyrrhus: But Grischuk does like the machine's choice. He's planning a5 here, it seems.
Feb-28-09  AuN1: leinier may be thinking about Bc7 preventing a5.
Feb-28-09  arkansaw: on the other game, Carlsen was fighting for his life some moves back, but his king and rook is so should be good for draw
Feb-28-09  AuN1: <arkansaw: on the other game, Carlsen was fighting for his life some moves back, but his king and rook is so should be good for draw>

damn you aronian! : x

Feb-28-09  SmotheredKing: Grischuk seems quite Rybka-esque this game.
Feb-28-09  AuN1: did leinier not have anything planned after g3?
Feb-28-09  AuN1: Bc7! you heard it here first 8-)
Feb-28-09  scrambler: 44.Kf1 played the a4 pawn will finally get some help.
Feb-28-09  melianis: This is a draw. I mean if either player wants it, i believe.
Feb-28-09  AuN1: f5! the very move i would have played, trying to loosen some pawns on the kingside, and looking to create an outside passed pawn on the h-file.
Feb-28-09  Pyrrhus: The position isn't close to being exhausted yet. It would be a little disappointing to see a draw here.
Feb-28-09  AuN1: white could have also played f4 to prevent black from doing so.
Feb-28-09  SmotheredKing: Now things look extremely drawish.
Feb-28-09  scrambler: 44...f5 with f4 in mind nice! I was thinking 44...Ba5 blocking.
Feb-28-09  arkansaw: it would be hard for either player to lose.. unless he is Leko
Feb-28-09  ettupacman: Just out of curiosity, which of the two is usually the stronger endgame player?
Feb-28-09  AuN1: the h-pawn is black's last hope for a win.

  scolley: 47...Rxa5 1/2-1/2 just played.
Feb-28-09  AuN1: ...shoulda played h5.
Feb-28-09  arkansaw: great..Grischuk continues to lead. I'll pass on looking at how carlsen gets ground down in yet-another-rook-endgame
