Jan-19-09  Per: A black tournament so far for the top seed
Jan-19-09  shintaro go: White tried to be too cute in this game.
Jan-19-09  ILikeCheese: hello...
Jan-19-09  piatos blue: Sasi is highly favored to win the group B. I even in favor for him... but what's happening is he's in the bottom after 3 games.
Jan-21-09  beenthere240: Calling 33...Qxa4 a sac is absurd, since white picks up 2 minor pieces for a rook without even a wisp of a combination.
Jan-21-09  beenthere240: However 35...Bxb2+ is at least a combination, since black picks up a rook for the bishop.
