Nov-07-07  TITIKIZA: This game is terrific
Nov-07-07  WarrenHam: Amazing! Is there some home preparation involved?
Nov-07-07  vlado23: great to see Svidler on song
Nov-07-07  hitman84: Black's position is very passive..
KB was dead and h8 ♖ never came into the game. King caught in the center without any protection. Open files for white rooks, long diagonal bishops. This is what you call suffering..
Nov-09-07  piteira8: How does white win?
Nov-09-07  whithaw: There doesn't seem to be any defense to Rd5+

I definitely think so. A very deep sacrifice by Svidler - for the Knight he gets only a pawn, but he has a lead in development, safer king and a strong bind over the central light squares.
