  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.

  OhioChessFan: 34...Bf5 was better. That b1 diagonal is begging for a Bishop to be on it.

  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

  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.

  OhioChessFan: Did So really trade down with that a Pawn ready to push?

  OhioChessFan: Wow. Coffeehouse blitz.
Apr-07-15  Tomlinsky: Draw?
Apr-07-15  kellmano: Draw on official site. Shome mishtake surely

Apr-07-15  Shams: If Robson took a draw here he needs to have his head examined.

  chessgames.com: 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.

  OhioChessFan: 42. Be2 looks far better, but still, White has got to be winning.

  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.

  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.

  chessgames.com: 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.
