  Penguincw: Out of black's first 22 moves, only 3 were moves to the 5th rank (or deeper) that weren't captures. Says a lot about the game.

  beenthere240: i was waiting for a great, smashing attack. And what do I get? Black gets his bishop stuck!

Aug-25-14  vdpandit: (a) Nguyen's 8. - g6 was unusual, with 8. - Be7, - Nc6 or - Nbd7 being more common choices. (b) Nguyen was fine until 15. - Ne5. He had failed to realize how quickly his b pawn would come under attack, and he should have played 16. - Nfd7 instead of 16. - Rfc8. (c) The move 20. - d5 was a desperate attempt to find counterplay for his lost pawn, but it only made things worse. Nguyen’s position quickly deteriorated, and though he regained his pawn, his dark-squared bishop was trapped behind enemy lines (on a3). (d) Sadly, Judit has since announced (on 23 Aug 2014) her retirement from competitive chess.
Aug-25-14  harshvk5: The game ended faster than a correct pronunciation of Black's name...
