  luzhin: White's 17.exd5!!, simply ignoring the threats of Qh4+ and Nc2+ , is very much in the razor-sharp spirit of this modern variation. The end was almost 19th century, however, with a crunching sacrificial assault on f7 leading to mate.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Ow, my brain hurts. The complications are incredible. However, should this not be classified as Slav Defense with 4...a6?
Jan-14-10  stratomaster: Great game-what a fight.

I've been looking at 12...c5, seems to put a new spin on things-either white will give up his bishop and castling privledges, or play 13 Rd1 and give up a piece for a couple of pawns.(the computer likes this idea it seems) Very interesting.

Jan-14-10  larsen959: After 31...Kd7, what follows? Maybe 32.Re5 (instead of 32.Qf5? Re6!). Decisive game for Russia in the final round!
Jan-14-10  larsen959: Sorry, I made a mistake. The decisive game was Tomashevsky-Roiz (it ended about 5-6 minutes before this game!).

Feb-17-11  sevenseaman: Exquisite R, B and P combination produced by Vitiugov for a very pretty mate.
