Jul-17-14  JohnBoy: 36.Nd4 - not an easy move to spot. Maybe a Friday puzzle?

Nice technique to close it out - particularly the tempo finagle with the rook at the very end.

<JohnBoy: 36.Nd4 - not an easy move to spot. Maybe a Friday puzzle?>

Not Friday level, IMHO. Just something simpler that a very strong 2700-level player just overlooked.

EXPLOIT. EVERY. PIN!

Jul-19-14  Mr. V: The analysis is here on Youtube. It seems like a good game, and based on their comments I think Motylev might have been better at some point.

Yeah, Black looks a little better until 35... Nh7? when 35... Nxb3 would've maintained the advantage.
