Jan-23-09  percyblakeney: It looks more and more as if Kamsky doesn't like playing against Radjabov, and still he never has to face him with the wrong colour :-)

Jan-23-09  Warheart: Weird indeed!
Jan-23-09  muradov: Good game from Radja! I'm glad he bounced back fast after his loss to Van Wely..that KID loss really hurts :(
Jan-23-09  Jafar219: Radjabov played like Karpov at his best times.Amazing positional play by Radjabov.
Jan-23-09  luzhin: 33.b5!! was an absolute killer. If it were not for that, the series of captures triggered by Kamsky's tricky 24...Ne5 might well have resulted in a draw.
Jan-23-09  midnightsun88: Teimour Radjabov beat Gata Kamsky 4-0 with 1 draw.WOW!Radja owned Kamsky!

<luzhin: 33.b5!! was an absolute killer. If it were not for that, the series of captures triggered by Kamsky's tricky 24...Ne5 might well have resulted in a draw.>

33 b4-b5!! is a *stupendous* example of what I like to call the <PASSED PAWN VERSUS ROOK TRICK>, which occurs when an enemy rook is on an adjacent file to a passed pawn.

Jan-24-09  messachess: This is brilliant play by Radjabov. 33.b5 is an awfully nice move by white.
Jan-28-09  Ulhumbrus: 41 Bd6 threatens to imprison Black's R by Bc7 if Black does not move his Rook, and to advance the passed b6 pawn to b7 if Black does move the Rook.
Jul-31-09  WhiteRook48: plan 42 Bc7 with Rb1-a1-a7
