Feb-16-14  builttospill: No comments on this one? Bronstein would be proud
Feb-16-14  paavoh: Chessbomb comments indicated that Black had only three minutes remaining at move 17... Talk about setting unusual problems to your opponents, Jobava clearly masters that trade...
Feb-16-14  nilba: Great game
Feb-16-14  onur87: always i dont understand whats going on. but always pleasure to watch jabova :). colourful game by colourful person.

  kdogphs: This is why I love Jobava... sacrifices a major piece on move 7 and makes his opponent squirm the rest of the game! Tal would have been proud of this game!
Feb-16-14  jancotianno: Tal would show this guy how to sacrifice :P

  Gilmoy: It's the sac, sac, middlegame, mate line against <4..g6>!
Feb-17-14  OrigamiArtist: Black did not really handle the opening well at all. 4...g6 is inconsistent with 3...a6. It was this inconsistency which allowed the possibility of 5.h4!? which seems like a sound and dynamic option.

3...g6 instead gives white absolutely no advantage at all.

Feb-17-14  jhelix70: This one deserves to be game of the day at some point.

In America, we have a saying: bad ju ju, which means a bad vibe or aura (here, haunting Savchenko). So perhaps this game should be called "Baad Jo Jo".

Or, maybe, "Baad Moon Rising".

Feb-17-14  docbenway: Spraggett liked this enough to include the conclusion in today's 5 Second Tactics.

In that homogenous land, America, we say that from sea to shining sea?

Feb-18-14  Everett: exchange sacs work most when the rooks have no play.
