Mar-03-09  Gor Gor: 31.Bxd4,exd4 32.Ke2,h5 33.Kd3,Bd6 34.h3 draw
Mar-03-09  Kaspykov: good game !
Mar-03-09  severus6: ...f4!
Mar-03-09  ontocaustic: there once was a player named grishuk/who had his time but 4 minutes took/before move 40/his opponent got ornery/and in the end wished he'd played more from book
Mar-03-09  Kaspykov: Dominguez - Aronian

ready for action ! :D

Mar-03-09  Gor Gor: reading that was a few seconds of my life i will never get back
Mar-03-09  OneArmedScissor: ...f4 was a mistake.
Mar-03-09  ontocaustic: is aronian wearing his psychedelica fish shirt today?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eyal: Grischuk managed to make the Petrov very lively yesterday, and the KID quite lifeless today.
Mar-03-09  Gor Gor: no it wasn't this is dead draw
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gypsy: 45.Bd3 would complete a quite pretty fortress. And White king could run around to his heart content however.
Mar-03-09  ontocaustic: there once was a kibitzer named gor gor/some would say he was a bore-bore/and try as he may/no matter what day/he'd never get back to his former
Mar-03-09  OneArmedScissor: My machine likes <42. ...Kf4> a lot better than ...f4. It gives <-.45> roughly as opposed to <+.04> from ...f4
Premium Chessgames Member Thank you for participating in today's live chess broadcast. Remember, tomorrow is a rest day (no games) -- the action continues Thursday morning at 10:00am (USA/Eastern). Hope to see you then!
Mar-03-09  nuwanda: oh <ontocaustic>, you are not only a strong player, you're a poet too,

very nice

Mar-03-09  elaijsa: white king can take b or d pawn but not anymore. it seems to be a draw.
Mar-03-09  suenteus po 147: Thanks, <> for the live game transmission!
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: A lot of players here surely would have played it better. :D
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <> Thanks for the live broadcast. =)

<ontocaustic> is a great player/Who won't appease any naysayer/His comments were missed/Thanks to ignore list/Since analysis is better than prayer

Mar-03-09  Ulhumbrus: 27 Kf1 is more flexible than 27 Rxc7 because after 27...Bxc5 White has, in addition to the option of 28 Rxc7 which transposes into the game, the option of 28 Bxh6! After 27 Kf1 Bxc5 one way for Black to lose is 28 Bxh6 Nd4 29 Bc4 Re7 30 Rd8+ Kh7 31 Bf8 skewering the R on e7 to the B on c5.

  al wazir: Grishchuk should have played 29. Rc8+ Kg7 30. Bxc6. It wins a ♙ and avoids oppositely colored ♗s.
Mar-03-09  ontocaustic: haha, your last line doesn't make any sense, when 'air' or 'hot air' would have been obvious choices
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eyal: <Grishchuk should have played 29. Rc8+ Kg7 30. Bxc6. It wins a pawn and avoids oppositely colored bishops.>

Still a clear draw after 30...bxc6 31.Rxc6 Bd4, e.g. 32.Bd2 Ra7 33.Ke2 Ra2=

  Eyal: In the position arising after 12...Kh8, a current tabia of the Bayonet line, Radjabov has already faced 13.Ne6, Rb1, Be3, and c5 (Repertoire Explorer: Teimour Radjabov (black)). The latter seems to pose Black the least problems.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eyal: Btw, according to a post-game interview Grischuk missed at first in his calculations that 30.Bxh6 isn't good because of 30...g5 - that's why he chose the line which leaves him a pawn down (though still with a safe draw). (
