  chessguru1: White's original opening is fine but the capture 14.bxc3 I believe is the root of white's difficulties. White should not be afraid to sac a pawn or two since his g file is already open. Computer evaluation on the sequence 14.Qxc3 dxe4 15.Rxg7 Rc8 16.Kb1 Nd5 17.Qd2 exf3 18.Bb5 Nde7 19.Be5 Qd5 20.Bxc6+ Qxc6 21.Rc1 Qxc1+ 22.Qxc1 Rxc1+ 23.Kxc1 Nc6 24.Rg4 Nxe5 25.dxe5 Ke7 is -0.51 which not that much and can be compensated by the open g file.
Apr-18-14  Bartacus: For a split second I thought White could hang on with 35 Rb5. However, Black wins with a brutal knight fork; 35...Rxb5 36 Qxb5 Na3+.

I've only seen a few of Saric's games so far, but I'm impressed. I think he'll be a name we'll hear more of in the near future.
