|May-11-08|| ||arnaud1959: This is what Chucky needed. A tournament that pushes players to play for win. I hope he will get rid of his inconsistancy this time.|
|May-11-08|| ||Nezhmetdinov: How can anyone be unhappy when Ivanchuk is playing well? It's Christmas round my house!|
|May-11-08|| ||Libispusher: Chucky Got Game, Brushes Off KID|
|May-11-08|| ||twinlark: |
Ivanchuk's moved up to equal number 5 in the live ratings with Topalov (2771) just behind Carlsen (2773) and Morozevic (2775) on <frogbert>'s list: http://heim.ifi.uio.no/~ha/toplist.....
If he keep this up he'll be world #1 by the end of the tourney!
|May-11-08|| ||Jimfromprovidence: I'd like to know how Ivanchuk figured out that 33 Kh1, below, kept him ahead and that 33 Bf2 instead would have lead to a draw by repetition.|
Was it skill, luck, or does it matter?

Anyway, it was a great match, two guys trading punches toe-to-toe like that.
|May-11-08|| ||Marmot PFL: It takes strong nerves to defend such positions. And if black had played 32...Qe8 and Qg6 instead of Qb6+ the result might have been different. maybe he overlooked 34.Nf5! stopping Rh4+, or that Qa6 was answered by Rg1! Fantastic crunch play by white over the last 10-12 moves.|
|May-11-08|| ||Atking: Yes a great game. When Ivanchuck is confident he is a real world Champion contender. Here I found quite funny the Ng1 took 5 moves to go on h1.|
|May-12-08|| ||parmetd: I wonder at 32 Qe8 instead of Qb6+?
Either way fantastic game by Chucky!
|May-12-08|| ||kellmano: <Aleksander Li> If you consider that simple, you must be a very strong player. I enjoy giving the Kings Indian a punt with black, precisely because positions like the one after move 25 say, are possible.|
I'd say great tactical awareness was required for this one!
|May-12-08|| ||Gnappo: I liked 30.Nc7! It needs bravery to counter attack when the situation around your castle is so difficoult. Ivanchuk puts his Knight into play, because he has already calculated that no move for Cheparinov can be decisive. Now Black's without defences, and until his pressure can't bring anything concrete, he falls down into a disperate position.
Ivanchuk calculated everything in 10 and more moves here, and made a wonderful confutation of 30...Rc8 that at first glance seems give the equality to Cheparinov (at least, for me that I'm a simple kibitzer). |
I hope the meaning is clear, I'm not so good in English. ;)

|May-12-08|| ||sexymichelle7: Hello,is this the checkers room?:)|
|May-12-08|| ||lopium: What if 32.Nxd8? I guess that Rxd2+ follows, but don't see any continuation.|
|May-12-08|| ||kingscrusher: I did a video annotation of this game earlier this morning:|
|May-12-08|| ||parmetd: Ronen Har-Zvi gave some analysis of 32... Qe8 instead of Qb6+? |
32. Qe8 33. Qc3 Nhxg2 34. Qf3 Qg6 (34... Rg6? 35. Qxg2 Nxg2 36 Rxf8+ Qxf8 37. Nxf8 Kxf8 38. Kxg2) 35. Nxf8 Qg7 (... Nxe1? 36. Nxg6 Nxf3+ 37. Rxf3 Rxg6 38. Kf1) 36. Ne6 Nxe1 37. Nxg7 Nxf3+ 38. Rxf3 Rxg3+ 39. Rxg3 Ne2+ 40. Kf2 Nxg3 41. Kxg3 Kxg7 draw
I still think Qe8 is unclear but way better than Qb6+? still I wonder in Ronen's analysis why 35. Nxf8
Also Chessvibes gives Chep's only mistake as Nhxg2? instead of the winning 33... Nhg6! 34. Bf2 Qb4 I don't see how this is winning but certainly better than the mistake.
Ronen improves the chessvibes line with 34... Qa5 35. Kg1 but Ronen also notes that instead of 34. Bf2 there is 34. Rxf4 exf4 35. Nf5 f3 36. g3 (34... Nxf4? 35. Bf2 Qa6 36. Qc8 Ng6 37. Nc7 Rh4+ 38. Kg1 )
|May-12-08|| ||parmetd: May-11-08 bravado1: Wasn't 34..Ne3 winning for black? At least at the first glance knight must be taken, and the ensuing position after the recap with the queen looks too strong to be defended. |
On Ne3 Qc8 Nxe6 Qxe6+
|May-12-08|| ||hedgeh0g: What if 16...Qb6+? Doesn't Black simply win a knight?|
|May-12-08|| ||Aspirador: <16...Qb6+> then follows 17.Nf2. This defends Nb5 and the other knight wants to go to f2 anyway.|
|May-12-08|| ||hedgeh0g: Oh yeah, missed the discovered attack for some reason...I need to get some sleep...|

http://webcast.chessclub.com/Mtel08... commentary by GM Ronen Har-Zvi
|Sep-23-09|| ||HansLoco: Black's Knights were good; but Whites tempo at move 43 seemed to solve the imponderables of pawn and counter-pawn walling.|
|May-27-14|| ||PhilFeeley: <Aleksandar Li: So decisive. Simple. Clear. Is it not guys?>|
If this is simple then I have to give up chess. Black had to be in time trouble at then end.
|Jul-22-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: Incredibly, after 33 moves, material is completely even, right down to both players' bishops being dark-squared.|
