Sep-18-07  THE pawn: Many thanks, Cg!
Sep-18-07  ajile: The Gelfand game is also interesting.
Sep-18-07  THE pawn: Grischuk's chess so far has been really impressive.
Sep-18-07  radu stancu: Moro's trying to make things hard, but surely this is winning for white, right?

  ketchuplover: thanks cg
Sep-18-07  Marmot PFL: Good day for Anand, Grischuk, and probably Gelfand.
Sep-18-07  twinlark: Moro will resign any moment now.
Sep-18-07  twinlark: Grischuk 1-0
Sep-18-07  chessic eric: get to the time control and resign Moro. Even after 41.Kh1,Nxd4 42.Qf8+ and things aren't pretty.

  ketchuplover: well played grischuk :)
Sep-18-07  chessic eric: two dancing rooks in one day - thanks <cg.com>
Sep-18-07  ajile: Gelfand is an exchange up but Aronian has a dangerous passed pawn.
Sep-18-07  dabearsrock1010: brilliant game by grischuk...20 Qf2 is some freakin inspired stuff
Sep-18-07  Resignation Trap: 19...h5, weakening the dark squares is what made 20.Qf2 so strong.
Sep-18-07  chessmoron: Where the heck is Moro's KID?
Sep-18-07  suenteus po 147: This is another impressive game. After playing through it quickly I must remark on the incredible skill with which Grischuk deconstructs Morozevich's position, first on the kingside, then on the queenside. It's like watching a kid building a giant sandcastle only to have a bigger kid come along and kick out the foundation just as it's getting tall. Anand has his work cut out for him tomorrow.
Sep-18-07  Softpaw: Can we expect to finally see a Sicilian then?
Sep-18-07  Hanada: Yea, that was surgical.
Sep-18-07  ounos: I can't believe Morozevich went for 19. ... h5. Trying to make the ultra-risky Ng4 work, using the sole defender of the king, was a very bold plan, but can't think of how it could have work.

At the next move he was wiser, and accepted the fact he just lost a critical tempo. What a disappointment...

Sep-18-07  orio24: This is a great game, wow.
Sep-19-07  scholes: rybka gives slight advantage for moro after 22 Be5 (i don't know if its coorect though). It wants to play 22 ..e4xf3 protecting its king side , so 22 .. Qxa3 was the blunder which cost the game , after 23.fxe4 black was simply lost
Sep-19-07  kingsindian2006: i think move 19 was bad as well for moro , once the bishop pinned his knight he was in trouble...
