Dec-01-14  visayanbraindoctor: A well rehearsed prep? Or another caveman attack that succeeds?

Or a prepared caveman attack?

Will be interesting to hear what Kramnik has to say about this game.

  whiteshark: What an opening disaster! Sjugirov caught on the wrong foot.
Dec-02-14  detritus: I guess that's a goldfish feasting on a barracuda, eh?
Dec-02-14  Ulhumbrus: One alternative to 16...Qc8 is 16...Re8 preventing Qe4
Dec-02-14  1d410: <visayanbraindoctor> a completely unprepared caveman attack!

  luzhin: In principle, 25.Nf6+ is the first move you would consider, but it was still hard to see in advance that after the Knight is captured, the White g-pawn moves aside to allow the WQ to defend against Black's threat to mate on g2.
Dec-02-14  paavoh: Yep, this species of goldfish has really sharp teeth.
