  Penguincw: Great win by Karjakin to pull even. I'm not sure where Dominguez went wrong, but I'm pretty sure he was already thrown off course after 1.Nf3. According to Repertoire Explorer: Sergey Karjakin (white), Karjakin has opened up with 1.e4 in nearly 90% of his games.

  JointheArmy: <Penguincw> He already pulled 1. Nf3 against Caruana this tournament. Karjakin's first move choice shouldn't have been out of the blue.
Oct-04-14  The17thPawn: So from what I see here black will eventually find himself in Zuzwang and have to give the opposition to white losing the game. I assume LDP resigned for this reason.
Oct-05-14  WiseWizard: 1. Nf3 is more in line with Karjakin's temperament.

  Domdaniel: White's 1.Nf3 had no bearing on the result. Black lost because he exchanged into a lost ending: simple as that.

  perfidious: Now I know why I never made super GM: I did not play 1.Nf3 often enough, thus throwing my opponents 'off course'.

  Domdaniel: <perf> What's this, modesty? You know *perf*-eckly well that you have sharper teeth than almost all of the plankton round here. And better English too, when you want to.

"Per FIDE ad astra", as Roman chessplayers might have said.

I told you a thousand times: "Start with 1.Nf3 to throw your opponents off course so that you can become a super GM! Start with 1.Nf3 to throw your opponents off course so that you can become a super GM!", but you never listen you see...

  perfidious: <Rookiepawn> and <Dom>, I was just in the slow reading group.
