  Gregor Samsa Mendel: Looks like 38...Bc5 was a major "whoops!" moment, probably due to time pressure. I guess black was lost anyway.

Chess is an unforgiving game.

Jan-19-06  AdrianP: 13. Na5! is Bologan's big novelty of 2005 which Anand picked up in Anand v Kasimdzhanov at San Luis.

See Bologan vs Gelfand, 2005 for the stem game.

  WannaBe: <Dres1> I am more roast beef or pastrami person. Extra mustard on mine!
Aug-30-13  jomas: Bologan means "an animal hired to impregnate his female specie" back from where I came from.

  Sastre: <harshvk5> 13...Qxa5 14.Bb6 Qb4 15.a3 traps the Black queen. Black can't play 17...Qxa5 for the same reason.
