  Gilmoy: 12.Nd5 offers the b-pawn to establish an annoying bind -- quite bizarre that Zvjaginsev took it. 14..a6(?) is nigh-inexplicable, too-obviously for b5-c4, but overlooking a simple tactical shot that regains the pawn with . 22..Rd7?? another one -- like a patzer with the two-ply horizon, not what we expect from a super-GM ...

  whiteshark: After 22...Bd4 or 22...Be5 it's a completely equalized game.

Feb-13-09  KERESOV: A surprising wipe-out to a Super GM of Vadim's calibre ... special credit also to GM Sergei's revival of the classical Dragon Sicilian !
