Oct-21-10  FISCHERboy: Damn, this Stevic is beaten so badly. He looked like a 2300 player.
Oct-21-10  FISCHERboy: One more win and he'll become world's number one in live rating of ELO (provided that Anand does not win a game in Nanjing).

  Ulhumbrus: The Rook sacrifice 32 Rg7+ serves to displace Black's King one square to the right so that Black can't answer the check Qb7+ with the interposition ...Ne7.

Actually, it's to deny the e6 square to the King after Qb7+, because 32.Qb7+ Ne7 loses to the now more obvious 33.Rg7+.

My favorite tacitcal demolition of 2010.

Aronian vs H Stevic, 2010 32 Rg1-g7+!! deflects f7-king so no support for e7 interposing

Mar-19-14  SpiritedReposte: At first I thought 28. Nd4 was to enable Qxb4. No, Aronian had something more decisive in mind.
