  Check It Out: Yeah, maybe he plays 26...Nd7 to put pressure on the e5 pawn again, but black looks weak here. Or maybe 26...Bf8 to attack the f3 pawn and then fianchetto the B to g7 to again put pressure on the e5 pawn.

  OhioChessFan: Onischuk can resign now.
Apr-29-18  WorstPlayerEver: In the meanwhile these guys are playing for beans. Which is funny because 'fabi' means beans in old Italian :)

  OhioChessFan: If I was Black, I'd run the clock down to 30 seconds, and then pretend to lose on time at my 40th move, just to save face.

  ChessHigherCat: And I was hoping you'd invite me to a luau! Yeah Nd4-Nf6 and even if BxN there's the narsty f6 pawn

  Check It Out: Down two pawns and space against the steam-rolling world champion contender: Onischuk will chuck it; shucks.

Too late, Shank won the tournament! :)

  ChessHigherCat: So Caruana has just surpassed Shankland unless Shankland wins his game, too?
Apr-29-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  ChessHigherCat: <Whiteshark> said Shankland just won the tournament, so he must have already won.
Apr-29-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  ChessHigherCat: Let that be a lesson to you: next time bet on Shankland instead, except that time he will lose....

  lost in space: Yups, second pawn gone, queens exchanged. 1:0
Apr-30-18  Ulhumbrus: 15 Nxe5?? walks into a fork after 15...Bxa2 16 Rxa2 Qd5. Caruana plays instead 15 Bg5! pinning the N on f6. After 15...Bxa2 16 Ra2 the move 16...Qd5 seems consistent, unpinning the KN with tempo, otherwise why has Black drawn White's QR on to the a2 square? Unfortunately for Black White can cover his rook with tempo as well by 17 Qa1! pinning and attacking twice the N on a5. On 17...b4 18 Bxf6 becomes possible. This suggests that when Onischuk played 12...d5 he had not foreseen all of Black's problems after the move 15 Bg5.

The precise moment of death can only be determined by the instant when the fat lady sings. Unfortunately, it has become virtually impossible to locate the fat lady because the missing-persons bureau will on longer publish inquiries containing the word "fat" or "lady", and searches for big-boned, saftig, curvy and supersized singing women have proven fruitless.
