Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-01-07  Paraconti: Akopian is going to win this tournament! Armenia's No 1 finally decides he wants the world title!
Dec-02-07  argishti: #2 my friend. but yes, he has a good chance!!
Dec-03-07  khursh: I am surprised on how smooth akopian won this game. Who can tell me which part of the game was decisive: opening, middle or endgame? And what was Malakhov's mistake if any?

  Everett: 12..Be8 looks strange. Is there an issue with f7 at that moment? With the N on e5 the very next move, this seems redundant.

Instead of 14..Bxh6 I'm sure 14..Nc4 can be considered, as well as 14..Bh8.

<khursh> White seems to have a won endgame by move 25. An extra pawn along with better structure and the better minor piece is a pretty strong advantage.
