Jan-17-09  patzer2: Instead of immediately playing 28. Nxc1 or 28. Rxc1 , White tries a bad in between move with 28. Nxc6?? This blunder forces White's resignation after 28. Nxc6?? Red8! 29. Rxc1 Bxd3! 30. Bxd3 Ndxc5 when Black wins a piece with this combined pin and discovered attack tactic.

Nice analysis.

Jan-19-09  Mulyahnto: I guess white tried a zwischenzug that wasn't there.
Jan-21-09  Garech: Nice play by Navara, the opening there was hedgehogesque and full of dynamic potential - won't be long before he's in group A!
