  DiceToThat: Why not 17. Qh5+? If ...Qf7 18. Nc7+ with loss of material, and if ...Ke7, well, that just looks plain awkward to defend.
Jul-15-06  patzer2: Karjakin's 12...e4? appears to be a costly positional error. Better IMHO is 12...Nc6 13. f5 Qe7 14. Ne6 Nd8 =.
Jul-15-06  patzer2: If 31...Ke8, White quickly forces mate with 32. Rfd1! .
Jul-18-06  polonius: I dread the day I may sit across the board from Morozevich ! When he is playing to his capacity do not look for close positional wins ground out in lengthy technique in a subtle endgame-rather than lose like that in a dignified manner , even the strongest of GM's will find themselves getting absolutely hammered in a tactical melee he seldom loses ! Wow . Impressive quick demolition of a tough young player in a non-mainstream line . As much as I relish Karpov-like microscopic precision strikes ,I also enjoy a game like this featuring a Tal-like B-52 carpetbombing ending things early!!
Aug-07-06  vizir: Nxe4
Jan-07-07  Oniyate: 4...nxe4?! qa4+
Jan-07-07  crwynn: he may have meant nxe4 after d4, which was actually played and doesn't lose a piece.
