  Gypsy: <42... Ne4??> Can we call this a blunder?

  moronovich: 43-Ne4?? is a bug.The game is drawn and the players are analyzing for the moment.

  Gypsy: I mean, it looks like it drops a piece and it is something I could play after a long think

  offramp: The arbiter might have moved the kings to the e4 and e5 squares and it registered as a faux move.

  FSR: <moronovich> OK, that makes more sense. No way Gris (or anyone rated above 2000) would play 42...Ne4?? God, did I kick ass on ChessBookie today.

Best of luck trying to penetrate the Reinfeldian platitudes of <uluseless>; what he really needs is a dose of originality.

  morfishine: It sure was disheartening to see Aronian "lost in the complications". Normally when one is "lost in the complications", its because they have been under relentless heavy pressure and so eventually, they are "lost in the complications".

However here, Aronian is the one applying pressure, attacking and hopefully forcing Black over the edge to the point he becomes "lost in the complications"; buts its him, Aronian, the attacker, that loses the thread. It doesn't make sense

I am so depressed I've decided to give up chess entirely and return to the monestary. Wait, I've never even been in a monestary

Guess I'm the one "lost in the complications"

  moronovich: Perhaps it was Bill Murray behind the white pieces today !?

At least "Lost in Complications",,should make for a good movie".

Mar-15-18  Fanques Fair: Aronian missed the simplest of moves while making the most complex ! Human play !
Mar-16-18  DansChessLounge: I've never seen a GM completely blunder like Aronian did in this game. For a video recap of the game check out my Youtube channel ---> https://youtu.be/50CSQGzw-4Y

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Had I the Black pieces, would not have resisted taking the b-pawn and playing on. But haven't played at my best level in decades, and my best was never very good. What did the players see that made them agree to a draw by mutual caution?
Mar-16-18  Mudphudder: One of the most (if not the most) exciting draws that I've ever seen.

  rogge: <Mudphudder: One of the most (if not the most) exciting draws that I've ever seen.> Wild and entertaining. I really enjoyed the endgame in this drawn game Kramnik vs Carlsen, 2010
Mar-17-18  Mirovsk: Aronian x Grischuk is a perfect example of how things can go wrong in a game --- at move 24 Aronian missed the completely winning 0-0-0 --- castle as the winning move --- at move 25 Aronian missed the modest and winning Kxe3…at move 27 Aronian had 50 minutes left x Grischuk 58 seconds —- at move 29 had Aronian played Qc8+ it was over —- but instead he played Qd8+ and from that point he had to fight for a draw —- in the next moves Grischuk had the initiative (the black turned into white) but —- draw —- a beautiful one --- poor Aronian said that he couldn’t explain what he had done, he said he lost his cool, a move like that in a tournament like this (his words) —-
Mar-17-18  WorstPlayerEver: This is nothing. I once needed half a point and blundered my Queen away at move 6. It also could have been move 5.
