Mar-11-15  Mayoigo2: 30. Nd5!! and 31. Bf6! GM Black never guessed what was coming for him!

  HeMateMe: bit of an upset, here. Bisby is outranked by 300-400 points, but gets in the killer wedge at f6.

  Gilmoy: <3.d3 4.Qe2> transposes from Sicilian to KIA? White already wants to push e6 for mayhem, especially after Black's oddball <17..h5> gives up castling.

White dredges up a spectacular idea: <20.d4!> temporary pawn sac, overprotecting Nb5 to let c4 go free: Nimzo nods. The point is not material, but the bone-in-throat <22.d6>, and the race is on: White must find an even better finish before Black calmly dismantles the chain at its base. And -- he does!

A mild upset, probably exacerbated by Movsesian being willing to risk a weird opening idea, then fanning a tactical firestorm instead of stubborn defense. White has more incentive to find a beautiful win than Black does to prove that his own idea won't work -- the human horizon!

Mar-11-15  haydn20: What a wretched career for the N at d8.
Mar-11-15  DLev: What is going on at move 27? Why does black move the K instead of capturing the N on b5?
Mar-11-15  MindCtrol9: White did not waste any time taking the initiative up to the end of the game.

  OhioChessFan: "Bisby Signal"
Mar-12-15  US255: 27)Qh3 threatens Qh7 followed by Bh6. If 27)...Rxb5 then a sample line is 28)Rxb5 Bxb5; 29)Qh7 Nc6; 30)Bh6 Bxh6; 31)Qh8 ++. Hence 27)...Kg8, but to no avail.

  iking: <DLev: What is going on at move 27? Why does black move the K instead of capturing the N on b5?> .. maybe Qh7?
