  Sneaky: Nice queen's rook ya got there Moro.
Sep-15-07  MyriadChoices: Man I hope moro doesn't blow it due to the clock
Sep-15-07  Boomie: This one seemed the most interesting of the remaining 2.
Sep-15-07  Bob726: This must soon be 1-0
Sep-15-07  Marmot PFL: I wouldn't expect Svidler to lose to Moro's Scotch, but something went wrong.
Sep-15-07  dabearsrock1010: looks like moro is winning
Sep-15-07  suenteus po 147: I cannot tell who is better in this game. Early on, with Morozevich's cramped position I would have bet on Svidler, but now it looks like Svidler is the one who is cramped.
Sep-15-07  percyblakeney: The rook will soon dance for Morozevich.
Sep-15-07  dabearsrock1010: any engine values?
Sep-15-07  Hesam7: Fruit says 33 d6 is winning (+3.85 @ depth 16).

  keypusher: Early on I thought White's position was wretched.
Sep-15-07  herby rawley: i think grischuk just missed a pretty mate combo on move 28

qxp at e7 kxq
rto h file check nx or q interpose dont help am i crazy??????????????????

Sep-15-07  TheBB: <herby rawley> What are you talking about? Grischuks game? No Qxe7 availible on move 28 there.
Sep-15-07  Bob726: No, I think what you mean is Qxh7+ Kxh7 Rh4 Nxh4 Rxh4 black can play Kg6
Sep-15-07  Resignation Trap: I also thought that Black was much better after about 17 moves. Then Svidler made some mysterious queen moves...
Sep-15-07  MyriadChoices: Yes, youre crazy. G6 is open for the king to escape to.
Sep-15-07  dabearsrock1010: <herby> I think i understand what you are saying you are not too clear but i believe the King can go to g6 after the knight takes the first rook
Sep-15-07  Cactus: How close are they to time control?
Sep-15-07  MyriadChoices: Cmon moro!
Sep-15-07  dabearsrock1010: keep the engine vals coming please!
Sep-15-07  TheBB: Engine says +3. Moro hasn't screwed up... yet.
Sep-15-07  MyriadChoices: YEAH! Moro won!
Sep-15-07  twinlark: Moro wins, and joins the leaders.
Sep-15-07  Hesam7: +4.00 @ depth 15.
