Jul-17-11  tjipa: Well, this is a subtle and complicated game, if I ever saw one! Thanks, GMs!
Jul-17-11  fisayo123: Great machine-like play from Wang Yue! Gashimov seemingly gives away a pawn for nothing with 29. Bd2?

  Domdaniel: White's 12.e4?! does not look like the best way to meet Black's intended ...f5. It almost ensures White some weak pawns and a positional disadvantage.

A 1988 game between Vaganian and Chernin went 11...Na5 (without a preparatory Rook move) 12.Nd2 c5 13.Ne4 f5 14.Nxd6 Qxd6 15.f4 Rae8 with a slight edge to White, who went on to win. 15...c4!? is perhaps better, hitting the White pawn centre.

These tiny margins may seem insignificant, but they can mean the difference between winning and losing in the English opening.

Jul-25-11  sevenseaman: Gashimov jumps for morsels. Wang Yue plays with an integrated plan and builds on tiny scraps.

42. Rb8+ and 43. Rc8 are desperate flailings of a loser. The moves are pointless and only serve to consolidate Wang's advantage that was already considerable.
