|Feb-11-10|| ||KERESOV: First of all, an excellently played game by the Filipino hero! I guess switching back to 1.e4 "Best by Test" is not a bad idea after all. Black was already lost strategically way before the 31... Nb4 blunder. However I am much concern on what GM Wesley So's response if Black just take on a2, instead of castling maybe 16....Qxa2 is a better alternative for GM Bocharov.White has excellent compensation for the pawn but Black's position is tenable.|
|Feb-13-10|| ||postmortem: @ KERESOV, I think 16...Qxa2 runs into difficulties after 17.Kd2 (threatening 18.Ra1).|
|Feb-17-10|| ||Ryan Razo: How about 30. e5 xd4 31. xd4? I believe it could go into a K v B ending, but is it worth the trouble?|
|Feb-18-10|| ||pulsar: <Ryan Razo>, <zanshin> posted an engine analysis on 30.Qe5 above.|
|Mar-04-10|| ||CedricDF: @posmortem & KERESOV if 16. ..., Qxa2
the Black Queen will be out of play after 17. Bd6 and a subsequent Qc5 by white, Black's queenside falls...

I think all other knight moves will lose a piece anyway.
|Mar-05-10|| ||Kwesi: Does Ne5 lose a piece?|
|Mar-05-10|| ||Kwesi: oops - 31...Ne5 32.Bd4|
|Mar-09-10|| ||Ryan Razo: I said How about 30. Qe5 Bxd4 31. Nxd4? What is the difference between NXD4 AND QXF4?!|
|Mar-09-10|| ||ounos: 31. ...Nb4 is not a blunder - Black is losing a piece anyway. (31. Qg1! is an amazing resource). 29. ... Nxf4??, that's the blunder. Of course, the following tactics prove why that's an error - the error it's hardly obvious at the position it occurred.|
|Apr-07-10|| ||MartinII: Nb4 is not a blunder indeed. There's no way black can save the other minor piece. Either blacks B or N will be won by white|
|Apr-07-10|| ||MartinII: Bc5 is an amazing move.
1. defends c2, (by blockade)
2. threatens to capture the N (at b4)
3. and enables the white Q to capture the B at g4 without leaving the whites B en-prise at b6.
suddenly, both minor pieces of black are en-prise.
|Apr-07-10|| ||jemand: If 16...Qxa2, then 17. Kd2 Qa4 (forced to avoid loss of the queen after Ra1) 18. Ra1 Qc6 19. Na5 Qb6 20. Bd4 does the trick winning the Exchange for White, pending corrections.|
