  sergeidave: Wow! Dominguez won vs Aronian!?? Congrats!! Capablanca would be very proud of his countryman.
Jan-30-09  Ulhumbrus: <After 25...Re6 26.Rc1 Rg6+ 27.Kf1 Qc8 28.Bxc5! Qh3 (I suppose that's the idea of Qc8) 29.Qe2 Black just gave up the c-pawn and his attack doesn't seem to go anywhere. > 28...Qh3+ comes with check, so White can't reply with 29 Qe2.
Jan-30-09  messachess: <Dominguez was very well prepared here> True, but Aronian missed the two-mover after 20...Bxg2. Pretty amazing.

Should be 27.Kh1, of course; 27.Kf1?? doesn't make sense anyway because it loses to 27...Qb5+.

  Eyal: <After the game white revealed that he had the position after 23.Be3 analyzed at home>

I'd be really curious to know what he had in mind in case of <16...Ba8> (instead of Bb7), with the idea 17.Ba7 c5 to be followed by Qc7 (or 18.exd6 Bxd6 19.b4 Qh4)

Btw, Aronian didn't have anything better than Bxg2 at move 20; the real crossroads came a move earlier, when he could have played 19...c5 with the likely continuation 20.Be5 Bxe5 21.Rxe5 Bxg2. It's very unlikely that he missed the "two-mover" tactics with Rxe8, otherwise he would probably have played 19...Bxg2? immediately, after which White has 20.Rxe8! followed by Qg4

It doesn't make any real difference. 27...Rh6 loses to 28.Bxc5! (Bg1 is ok too, but this is even stronger) 28...Rxh2+ 29.Kg1, e.g. 29...Rh6 30.Bxd6 Rxd6 31.Rxc6 Rxd1+ 32.Kf2 h5 (or any other move to defend against the mate threat on c8) 33.Rxa6; 27... Rf6 loses to 28.Nxc5! Rxf3 29. Ne4.

Jan-30-09  karoaper: Jafar, do I see a "Cubans smashing Armenians" collection in the works? How you manage to have such a presence here and have the time to imprison a princess is beyond me.
Jan-30-09  Jafar219: <karoaper> @#$% off
Jan-30-09  Jim Bartle: Glad you deleted that earlier insult, Jafar.

Nice bird by the way. Cheers!!

You are the second user who thinks so.The first one was acirce :)

Jan-30-09  Whack8888: Wow, I left this game at about 17...Qa8 and I thought Aronian had a fine position and would either draw or win. I am so surprised. This has been a good Corus, with all of the players putting up good fights etc. etc.

Jan-31-09  Atking: <14...c5 was played in the only previous, amateur game I could find with this position.> Shipov on Chess Base. Isn't 15.exd Bxd6 (15...Qxd6 16.Qf3) 16.Bxc5! recovers the pawn with initiative?

Yeah, so maybe 15...Qxd6 is the better move - 16.Qf3 Qd7 looks a bit awkward for Black, but maybe it's not that terrible e.g. after 17.Bf4 Rb6 18.Rad1 Qa7 and Black does have an extra pawn with nothing immediate for White. But as I mentioned a few posts ago, it seems that even after 14...Be6, Black should be fine with 16...Ba8.

  Eyal: Btw, in his press conference (http://www.chessvibes.com/reports/c...) Dominguez is asked toward the end about 14...c5 (he thought 14.Bd5 was a novelty, and is told that it was already played in one game where Black replied with this move) - mentioning 15.exd6 Bxd6 as refuted by 16.Bxc5, and 15...Qxd6 as what Black should play, though he thinks it's still "nice for White". He doesn't say anything about 16...Ba8, though...
Jan-31-09  Ulhumbrus: <And White has 31.Rxf8+ Kxf8 32.Qd8+ with mate.> For on 32...Qe8 White has Bd6+. It looks as if White's attack on c5 develops too quickly after 25..Re6. If that is the case, Black may have to try 25...Re5.
