Apr-07-15  Marmot PFL: 31...Rxb7 32 Qxb7 Bd5 and white is in trouble.

  OhioChessFan: 33. Be4 seems better.
Apr-07-15  Tomlinsky: Apologies for being a grouch but it seems an awful game to me at this level. They may as well have just played a blitz game with the clock forcing any creativity. Playing into this opening as Black when contending the top spot in the tournament seems ludicrous to me.
Apr-07-15  SirRuthless: Tough situation.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: 34...Bf5 was better. That b1 diagonal is begging for a Bishop to be on it.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Both will make it to time increment... Thank goodness for +30s per move.
Apr-07-15  SirRuthless: Wes can resign now. Well played by Robson to re-enter the event. Wes had a chance to catch Nakamura but another loss to a <2700elo player.
Apr-07-15  kellmano: Who saw that coming? Looks lost now
Apr-07-15  Marmot PFL: Yasser shocked by how badly So is playing. He seems like a relaxed guy but the pressure to succeed in the USA might be getting to him.
Apr-07-15  SirRuthless: I guess the more talented player doesn't always win.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Did So really trade down with that a Pawn ready to push?
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Wow. Coffeehouse blitz.
Apr-07-15  Tomlinsky: Draw?
Apr-07-15  kellmano: Draw on official site. Shome mishtake surely
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Are you kidding?
Apr-07-15  SirRuthless: Just changed to 1-0. Sorry So fans I know the feeling...
Apr-07-15  Jim Bartle: Whaaaa...?
Apr-07-15  Shams: If Robson took a draw here he needs to have his head examined.
Premium Chessgames Member The official site is listing this as a 1-0 now, we are trying to figure out how the game really ended. Sorry for the confusion.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: 42. Be2 looks far better, but still, White has got to be winning.
Apr-07-15  Marmot PFL: Ray needed the win after losing to Kamsky and is now back in it. I understand Nakamura usually clobbers him but anything can still happen.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Wow, White did win this.
Apr-07-15  Tomlinsky: Ah good, thanks <cg>. In that case, well done to Ray Robson. He didn't deserve to lose that given that he was the only one who turned up to play.
Premium Chessgames Member Sorry for the error in the game feed: with the rook stuck on a7, this game is indeed Robson's. We hope you all enjoyed the broadcast.

  OhioChessFan: And there's the Dancing Rookson.
