Super Ponomariov
Compiled by danielpi

Ponomariov is grossly underestimated. His positional insight and endgame technique are unbelievable, and I hope he'll get to be the legitimate (i.e. unified) champion one day.

Pono can handle Topa's tactics, and he's just better at endgame

Pono beats Fritz... 'nuff said.

Very close struggle, but Pono punishes Vallejo for sloppy play

Excellent judgment- the two bishops vs. rook is lots o' fun.

Bishops of opposite color not so drawish...
