  HeMateMe: This doesn't seem to be how GMs lose, at this level. A tactical endgame finese costs black a piece. Nice work by Radjabov.

  Penguincw: Radjabov seems to be dominating Navara now.

  Gilmoy: <30..d5 31.Rd1> "who's pinning whom!!" (d'ohh)
Jan-17-12  laskerdog: Seems to me that Navara had a cunning swindle in mind, but got busted by a better man. By moving his rook (31. Rd1) Radja called the trick.
