Jan-16-07  chessic eric: 66.Qe2?? what is wrong with Qg4+? Is Radjabov toying with Tiviakov for not resigning?
Jan-16-07  suenteus po 147: Rather than play any of those moves, Radjabov essays 66.Qe2 for the draw :p

  Mateo: <chessic eric: if radjabov doesn't want a4 with 66.Qd1, there is 66.Qg4+,Kf7 67.Qf5+,Ke7 68.Qxh7+ 1-0> Or 66.Qg4+ Rg6 67.Qd1.
Jan-16-07  MyCatPlaysChess: <Mateo: <MyCatPlaysChess: 66.Qd1 b5 saves blacks pawn on a4> 66.Qd1! b5 67.Rxd6!, 1-0.> Thanks! Missed the bishop fork after the exchanges!
Jan-16-07  chessic eric: i've heard of players setting the piece one square short of the correct square because of mouse problems, etc., but not at a 3-d board...
Jan-16-07  Marmot PFL: <Mateo:> Unfortunately Qd1 b5 Rd6 Qd6 Qd6 Rd6 Be5+ Rf6 and black's Q side pawns advance
Jan-16-07  chessic eric: good point marmot
Jan-16-07  Marmot PFL: Guess Tiviakpv was tired and just overlooked Qf1+

  xenophon: well that's that
Jan-16-07  Marmot PFL: Black can resign now. I am really impressed with Radjabov so far in Corus!

  Gypsy: 73.Qh8 would be cute.
Jan-16-07  THE pawn: Good god.
Jan-16-07  TheSlid: Ooh it is rather isn't it?

  Sneaky: Good game, well done. Who would have guessed that Radjabov would be leading Corus?
Jan-16-07  PeerGynt: <Sneaky: Good game, well done. Who would have guessed that Radjabov would be leading Corus?>

As a matter of fact I predicted that Radjabov will win Corus, but I did not say anything about him leading after the first 4 games.

Jan-16-07  arifattar: Radjabov moved his Q 14 times in the last 15 moves of the game.
Jan-16-07  luzhin: This was a classic game in the style of Alekhine -- switching the attack from King-side to Queen-side and then back again.

  offramp: The game ends at move 75 and we are still clearly in the middle-game. How weird is that?
Jan-17-07  Rawprawn: From where is this forcing? Qf1? That seems to be the most interesting point.
Jan-17-07  Lt. Col. Majid: It is way too early to say who would win Corus. We are not even at the half way stage yet.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Hanada: I bet 200 that Radja would win.
Jan-19-07  hitman84: A positional masterpiece!
Jul-22-17  Dave12: The horrible dark bishop was always going to lose.
