  Eyal: Jobava talking about the game:
Nov-16-08  Woody Wood Pusher: Painful instincts believe Chucky missed a draw here somewhere, his position after 37..Bc6 looks so solid.

  Eyal: It seems that Chucky actually tried a nice idea for creating a fortress with the 2 pawn sac starting in 40...e5, but Jobava managed to break through by precise maneuvering culminating in 65.b4! As he says in the interview, without White's b-pawn and this resource, the position would be drawn.
Nov-28-08  AnotherNN: Surely White could have mated with 84.Kf4 (next would be 85.Qg5++).

Feb-05-09  dumbgai: <AnotherNN> Yeah, that's what I thought too. Maybe he was in some time trouble. Jobava doesn't have much trouble winning at this point anyways.
Jul-27-09  totololo: I think that the merit of this game stays with Chucky as he sac the queen for 2 light figures. Did he make any commentary on this game? I would like to know his motivation for the sac.... Creative anyway ....not K-drawish
Sep-19-09  WhiteRook48: 84 Kf4 time trouble?
Jun-28-11  JamesT Kirk: Chucky,thank you for the "ypok"!!
