Aug-11-15  JohnBoy: T giving up the advanced pawn for a sustained major piece attack - sweet.

I like Lysyj, but boy did he get his lunch stolen today.

Aug-11-15  MindCtrol9: I do like the moves <14.h4 and 15.h5>This last move h5,is the one in my point of view,that brings a very uncomfortable game to Black.Here we can see the thought of a GM.It is a good positional move which can be seen in later moves.Nevertheless,I have to say that Black had to get rid off of this annoying Knight no matter what going to and endgame 2 pawns vs 1 on the QS,but still White should win.I do love games like this one where every move made by White has a lot of sense to me.

  Penguincw: Would've been something if Lysyj let Tomashevsky mate him with 40...Kf8 41.Re8# 1-0 (or 40...Qe7 41.Qxe7# 1-0).
Aug-11-15  siggemannen: where did black go wrong? wasn't it better to take the pawn on d5 instead of playing Nc4?
