mycroft2120: PawnSac -- Naka's slump extends much farther than this. He's been turning in lackluster performances since his big Tata Steel win. True, his rating has been high, but he's not winning big events. He really phoned in his 2018 Olympiad performance -- so many draws against low ...

mycroft2120: Tomorrow's match against China could come down to Shankland's game on board 4. * Fabi with white may not get a winnable edge against Liren, * So will be OK with a draw with black against a 2750, and * Naka is just plain out of form -- maybe he'll get pissed after his loss and ...

mycroft2120: Moro was not yet MORO!! ;-)

mycroft2120: ChessHigherCat... you missed that 34. .. Rg6? allows 35. Re8#.

mycroft2120: 38. e7+ is just aesthetically ugly. Why not the more clean 39. f7 and 40. B anywhere with mate to follow. Now black can blockade with Ke8, advance the queen-side pawns and create a lot more work for white. Ah.. it's a youth game.

mycroft2120: That was some home cooking by Naka...nice forced draw. Now ... can he bloody WIN a game or two? Come on Naka!!!

mycroft2120: I think the fatal mistake was in Fabi playing 12. .. b5 and 13. .. b4. That doomed the isolated b4 pawn after 14. cxb4 axb4. After that, with the white blockade on d4, black had no play.

mycroft2120: Losing on the very dark squares that black gave up on move 5. Love love love Moro's attacking.

mycroft2120: I mixed up my comments; on 18. ..g6, white crashes through with 19. Rxg6+!. Black has to take, so after 19. ..fxg6 20. Qxg6+ Kh8 21. Ng5 black has no defense. If for example 21. ..Nf6 then 22. Nf7+! Rxf7 23. Rd8+ with mate to follow. Black has to give up his queen, after which ...

mycroft2120: Black intended 27...Rxc2 but overlooked 28. e6! mating or losing the black queen.
