  Penguincw: Turov now 4/4! I believe no one has ever done that at Group C. Never the less the higher ones.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: On second thought, there were some 4/4. I believe Korchnoi was 8/8 in 1968 and most recently, Shirov started at 5/5 in 2010.
Jan-17-12  Everett: An attractive rook trap at the end. White at best will lose the rook for a knight.
Premium Chessgames Member
  LoveThatJoker: Well said, <Everett>. The final position is lovely because the Rook is indeed trapped in the end.

A couple of lovely "little combinations" by Black in this game!


Jan-20-12  Oceanlake: Black was most probably would win regardless, but a gambit that doesn't give an advantage in development.....
Premium Chessgames Member
  An Englishman: Good Evening: Move 34 might have been a good time for a4-a5, allowing the Rook an escape route via a4 and a2. White's still in trouble because of the manner in which Black has organized the Knight, Bishop and 2 center pawns, but Haast can still fight on.
Jan-20-12  ounos: I thought 26. Ne3 was necessary.

  Penguincw: The first 2012 game to receive a pun. Who's next?

  kevin86: A good finish...two pieces beat a rook with equal least here.
Premium Chessgames Member
  erniecohen: He's 5/5. Of course that tends to happen when you have an average advantage of 300 rating points over your opponents.
Premium Chessgames Member
  erniecohen: Make that 5.5/6. That's what happens when you play Black against someone within 100 rating points.
Jan-20-12  adrCavazos: What would be a continuation of this? 39.b4?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sastre: 39.b4 Bd4 wins the rook.
