<yoozum: Morozevich never fails to surprise.>

Yes, a *tremendous* positional crush by Moro.

This game really highlights Mamedyarov's major weakness: <PASSIVE DEFENSE>. One could imagine Carlsen finding some way *not* to lose this position.

35 ♘d3-c5! <coordinated play: q-side attack>

35 Nd3-c5 a better example of <COORDINATED PLAY>, of all the pieces working together, could not be asked for. The resulting pressure from the <COORDINATED PIECES> in the <QUEENSIDE ATTACK> is overwhelming.

Jul-16-13  haydn20: 35. Nc5 is a nice move to be sure, but--15...Bf8!? seems to condemn Black to pasivity. 15...Bh6 seems better to me. In the game, 16. Ne5 is strong and Black seems content to "play for the loss". Nonetheless, he might have tried 31...Rg8 for a little counterplay, and he might even had some chances to survive with 32...Ne8. The trouble with playing passively is that sometimes when you need to be a little active, you can no longer see how to. BTW, is it my imagination, or is the Gruenfeld getting beat up a lot these days?
Jul-17-13  widjaja70: Why did Black resign in that position on move 41?
Jul-18-13  garrettfu5: <widjaja70: Why did Black resign in that position on move 41?>

Mamedyarov understands that both a-pawns will drop and that this is an absolutely winning endgame for white.

Aug-11-13  paavoh: A very beautiful game by Moro. If I had not seen the player's name, I could have thought this was by Jakovenko or Kramnik.
