|Mar-26-11|| ||polarmis: Here's Sergey Shipov on Svidler playing 1. g3! in this game: |
|Mar-26-11|| ||YourNickname: Very bad game by Anasthasios Mastrovasilis. I cann't believe he overlooked 10... Nxd5! After 11.Bxd5 Qd4+ and black wins for sure. And after
11. Nf3 Qh6+ 12. e3 Qxe3+ 13. Kc2 Qe4+ 14. Kc1 Nc6 Black has a very good game and white has an open centre. |

|Mar-26-11|| ||polarmis: In that line 15. Nc3 and White's apparently doing fine (yep, according to the computer - it's too crazy for me, but probably not for Svidler!). Black's king also isn't great and by the time he untangles White wins the f2-pawn. For some reason your diagram seems to have a black pawn on h2 as well!|
In any case 11. Nh3 seems to be better after 10...Nxd5. The longer you leave any lines after that the larger White's advantage becomes. It's not pretty, but Black simply hasn't developed enough pieces to have an attack.
As I mentioned at the bottom of Shipov's comments, maybe 9...Na6 was necessary, though I wouldn't bet against there being a forced win for White there either. And you have to remember that Mastrovasilis was no doubt genuinely shocked by Svidler's 1. g3! :)
|Mar-26-11|| ||YourNickname: <polmaris>, sorry, this was the first time i used diagram. It looks really funny :P.|
And you are right. After 11.Nh3 black got a bad position with 11... Qd4+ 12. Kc1 Qc4+ 13. Qc2 Qxc2+ 14. Kxc2 Ne3+ 15. Kd2 Nxg2 16.Nxf2 b5 17. Ne4
