  whiteshark: <15...Rd8> was indeed the decisive blunder.

  whiteshark: Instead of playing 15.Qc7 I would have tried more sharkly <15.Nxe6 fxe6 16.Bxf6 Bxf6 17.Qxe6+ Kf8 18.Rd7>

which is imo winning for white.

Unfortunately I couldn’t find a advantageous continuation after <15.Nxe6 fxe6 16.Bxf6 <gxf6> 17.Qxe6> so far.

Nov-28-07  pawnofdoom: The beginning of Macieja's awesome performance at this tournament. I believe he's the lowest rated player so far to have won all 4 games, including 2 against 2700+ player Radjabov!

It looks like at the moment his running score is actually +3 =1 (V Laznicka vs Macieja, 2007). Quite impressive still.
