May-05-08  KarAkter: 14.de6!? deserves attention.15.Be3 does nothing against b5,15.Bf1 seems more logical to me.36.Bc5! was turning point of the game,and after better 36...Ra7 37.ba7 Qa5 38.Be3 Bh3 white had huge advantage
May-05-08  ALwoodpusher: I wonder if 39...Be8 can hold for black instead of Be7?; nice shot by Svidler with 36.Bxc5!
May-05-08  KarAkter: After 39...Be8,simple 40.Qd8

  whiteshark: From the Tournament Bulletin:

Like Navara, Svidler managed to win his last two games, finishing on a reasonable fifty percent score. Today he beat his compatriot Inarkiev.

"The two games I won with White, I played 1.d4, so perhaps there's a lesson there," he started the press conference. "I have started playing the King's Indian myself and I had looked at some of Ernesto's games, the master in these positions.

After 13...e5 White is slightly better but 14.a3 was inaccurate, losing a temp and weakening b3. Two moves later I blundered and allowed 16...Nxb3, but 18...axb5 is a big mistake – Black shouldn't exchange these knights.

Afterwards I had many attractive possibilities and I chose the one that seemed to give me the most chances."

Inarkiev said he played a "very bad game". His best chance was <36...Rxa7 37.bxa7 Qa5!> but he just didn't see it.

"But I think White should be winning there too."

  Mateo: <KarAkter: after better 36...Ra7 37.ba7 Qa5 38.Be3 Bh3 white had huge advantage>. I am not so sure White has <huge advantage>. For instance, after 39.Bf1 Qa2 40.Rc1 (40.Rb8?? Qa1) Bxf1 41.Kxf1 f5 is unclear.
May-12-08  KarAkter: Hmmm,maybe you are right Mateo.After 42.Kg2 f4 43.gf4(or 43.Bb6 Qa6 44.gf4)ef4 44.Bd4 Qa4(i´m not sure,but in my opinion black must sooner or later take bishop on d4 and allow a8Q)45.h3...i don´t know,is hard to say for me.Maybe is there some perpetual...
