  ChemMac: Krush was lucky to be given 67.Bg2?? After e.g. 67.Bf3, winning with an exchange up with only one pawn left on each side isn't exactly easy!

  whiteshark: repost:

<waustad: While watching live, it looked like Krush tried to get the game drawn by repitition but it was 1 ply short, so the arbiter sent them back to the board.>

Yes, she must have written <40...Qg5> down on the scoresheet and both players and the arbeiter checked it in a separated area.

Btw, what about <41. Rf8+ Rxf8 42.Rxf8+ Kxf8 43.Nxe6+> for♔ ♔+♕?

Sep-10-16  Granny O Doul: Interesting, Whiteshark, but Black will surely play 42...Kh7.

  whiteshark: <Granny O Doul: Interesting, Whiteshark, but Black will surely play 42...Kh7.> Right! Black probably sacs her ♘ on g3 and this should end in a draw.

  Calli: Probably the critical game in Russia's failed bid for Gold. Losing to the lower rated US team was uh, Krushing. (Sorry about that!)
