  notyetagm: This loss by Movsesian cost Armenia all three medals:

Movsesian wins => Armenia gets gold, 1st outright

Movsesian draws => Armenia gets gold, =1st, winner on tie-break

Movsesian loses + Hungary 4-0(!) over Bulgaria => Armenia gets *nothing*

Nov-12-11  haydn20: It's interesting to me that with so much at stake White chooses an inferior line (according to my sources). Already at move 15 he is having trouble finding a decent move.
Nov-13-11  LIFE Master AJ: Its very interesting ... I agree, the opening did not work out well for White.
Nov-14-11  kurtrichards: I pity GM Movsesian. But GM Aronian and GM Akopian could have gone all out in order for Team Armenia to win the tourney but both drew their respective games without much fighting...Naiditsch,Arkadij vs. Aronian Levon 0.5-0.5 12 moves... Fridman,Daniel vs. Akopian,Vladimir 21 move...
