|Nov-17-11|| ||waustad: The video link you have is for the Tal. http://www.wwcc2011tirana.com/templ... supposedly works sometimes, but it not at all reliable.|
|Nov-17-11|| ||haydn20: 28...Qe3 looks pretty good too.|
|Nov-17-11|| ||Domdaniel: Here we go ... 29.Qxb6 axb6 30.Bxb7 fxe4 is very strong for Black.|
|Nov-17-11|| ||Domdaniel: Now 31...Re7! is nice, so that 32.Rxb6 Rb8 wins.|
|Nov-17-11|| ||Domdaniel: 33...e3 34.Bd1 e2 won't save White. It could be over soon.|
|Nov-17-11|| ||haydn20: 33 Ba4 amy be terminal--I think the B had to stay on the long diagonal.|
|Nov-17-11|| ||Gordon1306: Looks like Black wins easily here. Will she get a dancing Rook?|
|Nov-17-11|| ||Domdaniel: 37...Rdf6 0-1 now?|
|Nov-17-11|| ||Gordon1306: Thanks to CG for the games.|
|Nov-17-11|| ||Domdaniel: Interesting that Hou never tried to make anything of her Queenside pawns, despite the passed a-pawn. As early as 23...Rae8! she concentrated on central pressure, and it paid off beautifully. A very good win.|
|Nov-17-11|| ||Administrator: Thanks to everyone for being with us today. We will resume our coverage of the Tal Memorial tomorrow at 6:AM USA/Eastern time when we will feature the Kramnik-Carlsen match. Hope to see you then.|

No it doesn't.
The way Hou defended the loose kingside (particularly the bishop moves 20, 21, 22) while also maintaining enough control of the queenside was much more creative and accurate than you are capable of producing.
|Nov-17-11|| ||twinlark: Nice piece of sustained ferocity by Hou.|
|Nov-18-11|| ||WiseWizard: This looks like one of those battles that was won at home in preparation as White's position must have looked very good visually with the f6 square and Black's weakened kingside, but Hou was able to even give up the h6 pawn and have enough resources to defend and even counterattack. Koneru might have been fooled in the evaluation of this line as it looks like White should have a crushing attack but her many pawn and light square weakness balance it out. Live Houdini analysis said White never had much of an advantage and then she began to make inaccuracies. |
This position is worth studying as Black was able to give up the h6 pawn and still defend her King.
|Nov-18-11|| ||HeMateMe: On Chessbase she said that she was out of her home analysis by the time she took the pawn on a2.|
|Nov-18-11|| ||WiseWizard: To evaluate 18...Qxa2 as safe for Black was strong preparation indeed.|
|Nov-18-11|| ||wordfunph: quotes..
"I took my time to think about taking the pawn on a2. My king could get in trouble, but I decided to go for this principal continuation".
- GM Hou Yifan
"I had a good position, but I was making not good moves."
- GM Humpy Koneru
|Nov-18-11|| ||Ladolcevita: Congrats to Yifan on the first win,nice play indeed!
After taking the a2 pawn,she exhibited really remarkable precision in the middle game,making such wonderful moves as Qb2 Bf5 Be4 Bd3 and eventually was able to bring about the triumph!
Koneru actually played okay in these three games and was particularly well-prepared in the opening,it's just Yifan defended very accurately and found some brilliant moves whilst Koneru had made some inaccuracies....|
|Nov-18-11|| ||xanadu: I think today Koneru tried to demonstrate herself that she can beat Yifan in a tactical battle. This is a mistake in my opinion: Yifan is better than Koneru in this aspect, hence is a conceptual error to enter in that dispute. To beat Yifan my opinion is the following: play a quiet opening (e.g. Catalan 6g3 instead of Nimzo-like Bg5); simplify the position in the middle game; being with a little advantage for the end and never being in time trouble. This is the plan she followed in the first two games. In this one, Koneru lost the patience, moving away from that plan, and thus entering into the Yifan`s territory: tactical complications in the middle game. The result is the logic consequence of that.|

Okay let me clarify something and point out something else: 1) The very last position of the game has occured to me on several occasions, I apologize for not clarifying. I was commenting on THAT first and foremost. 2) Please read the posting guidelines particularly #3... Thank you.
