  FSR: 34...Qxg2+ 35.Qxg2 Rxg2+ 36.Kxg2 fxe3 was a trivial win.

Yes. Playing the game through I missed it but I suppose that is the way of Rapid. Otherwise Karjakin plays Rapid pretty well.

But that was a pity for Grishuk who is also obviously a very talented player to say the least. He seems to be not always as sound in the openings as some of the others, or as above he has DISAPOINTMENTS.

Good finish!

  HeMateMe: why? black is down an exchange and his pawn can't queen. He'll just lose that f pawn.
Jun-15-18  paavoh: @HMM: After the sequence <34...Qxg2+ 35.Qxg2 Rxg2+ 36.Kxg2 fxe3>, I see that White has R, B and 5 p while Black has R, B, 5 p + a Knight. How is that an exchange down?

  HeMateMe: You're right. I thought FSR typed "f3" (not taking the white Rook). I gave that a quick glance, without looking at the board.
