Dec-16-10  jmboutiere: Back equalised in 10 moves.
Dec-16-10  jmboutiere: 20.Rd2 beter than 20.Rc1
24.R1c2 or 24.h5 much better than 24.Rc5
Dec-16-10  jmboutiere: 29.h5 or 29.Nh5 better than 29.a3
Dec-17-10  sofouuk: <jmboutiere> or in other words, downhill all the way for white. 'bad day at the office' would be one way to sum it up - 'outclassed' might be another
Dec-17-10  Shams: On the very same day, Carlsen beat Howell-- also with the black pieces and also due to white having a hanging knight on h5.

  whiteshark: It looks so easy when the Dude is playing.
Dec-17-10  woodthrush: White gave up both Bs by move 9, then declined Q trade at move 10 in a position where opposite castling could happen either way; this is a recipe to hand black the attacking advantage. While white pushed a 4 pawn roller, black pushed a two pawn roller, faster by far.

  kevin86: The knight-and the attack-is a goner.
Dec-17-10  beenthere240: Unlike Howell, however, black here did not throw a Nf6+ into the ending.
Dec-17-10  WhiteRook48: white has no chances
Dec-17-10  waustad: <kurt> Pawn storm
Dec-23-10  blazerdoodle: 'bad day at the office' would be one way to sum it up
