  Boomie: -}

19. e3 is such an awful move that after 21...Ba6, white should give up the exchange with 22. d4. This keeps the knight out of d3 where it's worth more than a rook. After 22...Bxf1, 23. Bxf1 improves the bishop's scope. White has good play on the c-file and may be able to hold.

  mycroft2120: Just a beautiful domination game by Gris. Instructive centralization and use of outposts. I especially like how he made arrangements for b6 to be over-protected without losing the initiative.

  malt: Not an attractive move to make 22.Nc1,good game by Grischuk, 29...N:f2, looked stronger

  HeMateMe: Knights beat Bishops, here. White let his position get completely blocked.

  Xeroxx: Bishops are people.
