This is a stupendously well-played game by Jakovenko, like watching Karpov back in the 70's and 80's when Karpov was a 1 e4 player.

Nov-25-07  dabearsrock1010: <notyetagm> I was thinking Karpov too but didnt want to say something too blasphemous
Nov-25-07  Karpova: Nice to see trading him down to a won bishop-of-opposite-colour ending with his centralized kind and the black king being caught in a corner. So he can make use of black's weak pawn structure and either win the a- or the d-pawn while black can only defend with his bishop. His king was useless.
Nov-25-07  s.ahmed: খূবই হতাশাব্য- ান্জ্ক পারফর্ম্- যান্স.
বাংলাদেশ- ের টপ গ্রান্ডম- াষ্টার হিসেবে জিয়া-র উপর অনেক ভরসা ছিল .
Nov-26-07  somitra: The above comment is in Bengali. The writer is complaining that "He is disappointed. He had lot of confidence on Jia since he is the top GM of Bangladesh."
Nov-26-07  s.ahmed: <somitra>: You are right.Thanks for translating the comment from my native. However, this performance doesn't represent Zia's ability.He was suffering in typhoid for almost one week,and played with fever.
Sep-12-08  Whitehat1963: Another impressive endgame from Jakovenko.
