Feb-10-15  drleper: After the suicidal 23...♗c5?? an alternative finish was 26. ♘xf6+ ♔g7 and then the f6 knight can be sac'd 27. ♕xh7+! ♔xf6 28. ♕h6+ ♔e7 29. ♖e1+ ♔d7 30. ♕c6#

Or the black king can walk up the board in some other variations and get very quickly mated.

Tournament is over, now on to more inportant matters: Alexis or Hazard as captain? #fantasy>

Feb-10-15  Progman: 15. Qxa6... I guess a sac against Naiditsch was bound to pay off sooner or later :-)

  Peligroso Patzer: This was an "Armageddon" game played at the following time control:

"6 min for White and 5 min for Black + 2 sec a move (in case of a draw Black wins)".
