  gregory2188: 33. Qd6! Good for Tuesday.
Jun-18-13  csmath: 10. ... Rxe3?! is played but not on the top level. This is more of a coffee house chess. Gelfand clearly showed that it is bogus and Gelfand played extremely regular and natural moves. This means that the whole variation is bogus indeed.

  kingfu: 10...Rxe3??? Gelfand chooses the right moment to give back the exchange while winning black's central pawns. This was enabled by 6.h3 (which Houdini labeled as sub-optimal) and 6.Bd3 which only gave Black's lsb d7.
Jun-18-13  TimothyLucasJaeger: Moro dumps the exchange like a filter full of twice-used coffee grounds. Trash chess.
Jun-20-13  irving7: Gelfand to znany znawca benoni co pokazał w partii z moro, przejoł inincatywe w debiucie i nie oddał jej już do końca.
Jun-23-13  kstokelyk: 30. Rxf5 could be a nice puzzle.
