Dec-12-05  percyblakeney: Speaking of computers, Shredder says 23. Ng5 and +0.72.
Dec-12-05  gmgomes: I think white plays Ng5

  crafty: 23. ♘g5 ♗xf3 24. ♘xh3 ♖fe8 25. ♗b6 ♖c8 26. ♖e3   (eval 0.45; depth 13 ply; 150M nodes)
Dec-12-05  bks: Why not Ng5?
Dec-12-05  Deep Urkel: There's that Ng5 move I was talking about earlier. (toots horn)
Dec-12-05  Koster: Ng5 seems to give white better ending besides there aren't any other good moves.
Dec-12-05  messachess: White's in trouble here ladies and gentlemen, guys and gals, dudes and chicks. I think that about covers the human race.
Dec-12-05  ARMENIA: White is winning... Ng5 is winning for white
Dec-12-05  messachess: <Koster>...but black doesn't have to trade queens. It gets messy.
Dec-12-05  Bobak Zahmat: Wow! 23.Bg7!?
Dec-12-05  Toporagno: white decides to draw?
Dec-12-05  Deep Urkel: White is forcing a draw? 23...Kxg7 24.Qf6+ Kg8 25.Qg5+ etc.
Dec-12-05  amateur05: ...Kxg724. Qf6+ Kg8 25. Qg5+ and draw?
Dec-12-05  azaris: Bacrot doesn't take chances while 20 minutes down on the clock.
Dec-12-05  Koster: Just draw now, not very interesting
Dec-12-05  messachess: He was probably lucky to be able to force draw.
Premium Chessgames Member Thanks to everybody for coming by today. Tomorrow's game will start at the same time, 5:00am (EST).
Dec-12-05  gus inn: look like half a victory for Aronian.
Dec-12-05  gus inn: thanks to for broadcasting.
Dec-12-05  sheaf: <ARMENIA> can you give the winning line after 23.Ng5. 23..Bxf3 as crafty pointed out is a pretty good defence.
Dec-12-05  notsodeepthought: I thought black would be better after 23 ... f5 but Aronian must have seen something I didn't (or else he was happy to draw with black, which is a good result).
Dec-12-05  bumpmobile: <messachess: White's in trouble here ladies and gentlemen, guys and gals, dudes and chicks. I think that about covers the human race.> Buckaroos and Buckettes?
Dec-12-05  xerkspking: i like aronian though cause his moves played for a win, bacrot seems to limit his chances to draw.
Dec-12-05  Boomie: 17. Qxd5 appears to be a good try for white.

17. Qxd5 Rfe8

Feb-12-07  argishti: can anyone explain to me why this game is a loss for aronian (although it said draw here, it marks this game as a loss for aronian for some reason in the other pages) anyone knows why?
