Jan-23-09  computer chess guy: 23. .. ♕c4? was a terrible error ( .. ♕b6 is the only move, although White is still better).

Jan-23-09  midnightsun88: Morozevich is clearly in poor form.
Jan-24-09  Woody Wood Pusher: Moro just can't play consistently well enough against 2700 players.

Leads to some fun games though!


Jan-24-09  Nezhmetdinov: This looks like MY hit-and-hope stuff with black.. It hurts to see Mr Mercurial when he is at such a low ebb. Still: he often goes on big runs to match his poor ones - let's hope we see something like that SOON from the current chess player dearest to my heart (apart from Ivanchuk, and that's a whole OTHER nightmare...)
Jan-28-09  Ulhumbrus: 34 Qf2 removes White's Q our of the range of a potential Knight fork on b3 eg after 34 Rxb3 Nxb3+) and attacks as well the f7 pawn. On 34...Qa4 35 Qxf7+ Kh8 36 gxh6 gxh6 37 e6+ and al Shah mat.
