|Jul-07-17|| ||fisayo123: Teimour is showing shades of his former self. 38. Rxg7!! is a spectacular blow that is easy to miss and he saw it in severe time trouble. This is a fantastic game by Teimour.|
|Jul-07-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: Hmm.. probably time trouble. 36 Rg7 was also possible. |
But 32... Rcc8 is just horrible. After 32... Qe2 Black can still fight.
|Jul-08-17|| ||Whitehat1963: What's best play from the end?|
|Jul-08-17|| ||whiteshark: White's next moves are 42.Qxb7 and 43.Qxa7, e.g.|
<41...Bg5 42.Qxb7 Rc2 43.Qxa7 Re6>

|Jul-09-17|| ||Whitehat1963: I realize the material advantage is significant, but it just seems like there's more fight left in black's position, making for an early resignation.|
|Jul-10-17|| ||patzer2: Whites demolition 38. Rxg7!! would make for a neat Saturday puzzle.|
After <38. Rxg7!! Be5>
If 38... Kxg7, then 39. Rg4+ Kf8 (39... Kh7 40. Qf5+ Kh8 41. Qf6+ Kh7 42. Qg7#) 40. Rg8+ Kxg8 41. Nf6+
Kf8 42. Qxb7 Rc7 43. Qd5 Re6 44. Qa8+ Kg7 45. Ne8+ Rxe8 46. Qxe8 Re7 47. Qc8 (+2.96 @ 21 depth, Deep Fritz 15)
<39. Rg8+ Kxg8 40. Nf6+ Bxf6> If 40... Kf8, then 41. Nd7+
Qxd7 42. Rxd7 (+6.76 @ 21 depth, Deep Fritz 15)
Black resigns after 40...Bxf6 because he is lost after 41. Rg4+ Bg5 42. Qxb7 (+6.90 @ 24 depth, Deep Fritz 15.)
P.S.: Black's decisive mistake appears to be 37...Qb7? allowing 38. Rxg7!! Instead 37...Rc5 38. Rd3 (+0.76 @ 21 depth, Deep Fritz 15) puts up more resistance.
|Jul-10-17|| ||Keyser Soze: Yeah, very nice combination. 38 Rxg7! letting black Queen hanging .|
Radja on fire so far ,with +2.
|Jul-11-17|| ||morfishine: Excellent game by Radjabov, and pulled off against none other than super-solid Eljanov|
Very well played indeed!
|Jul-12-17|| ||SirRuthless: To defeat Eljanov with the black pieces is a sign of the great Radjabov returning from the ashes but I am not convinced just yet. If he can manage to hang on and capture first then it will be undeniable that he is still capable of winning strong fide tournaments but it says nothing about consistency or ability to win the most elite classical events. He's got a long road back to the heights he reached around the turn of the last decade.|
|Jul-13-17|| ||Whitehat1963: I don't see the clear win for white. Misplaced resignation?|
|Jul-16-17|| ||offramp: 32. h5.

This position is a reciprocal Zugzwang. They are very rare in the middle game.
