  offramp: After 23...h5 white seems to have quite a good position. Perhaps he should have played more slowly; something like 24.h3 then a4. If the pawn at b5 had been protected Bacrot wouldn't have had that ...Nxb5 defence he used later. Aronian cannot be happy with the result. If he had won this then he would have been sole leader on 8 points going into the last round!
Mar-11-06  amateur05: I think 25. f6!? was premature. White could have postponed this move and protected the vulnerable and important b5 pawn.
Mar-11-06  ARTIN: doesn't 33.Rb2 win?
Mar-11-06  amateur05: The report of this game will soon appear on chessbase.com
