  SirRuthless: Much needed win for USA. Once Fabiano got control it was always going to be tough. Eljanov has been playing well but the position around move 29...Rxe6 and opponent were too much for him today. Ukraine is not finished. Great game.

  Marmot PFL: Some great Karpov-style technique here by white, using the outside passed pawn and exposed black king to gain time to win.
