  kamalakanta: Why can't Black play 12...Nxc5 followed by 13...Nfd7?
Mar-02-09  samikd: He can, and thats actually the main line as far as i know. but this line is very interesting.

A beautiful game

Mar-02-09  woodywoodpusher: Why didn't black play 23...Nf2+? It seems to win immediately.
Mar-02-09  woodywoodpusher: e.g. 23...Nf2+ 24.Kg1 Nd6+ 25.Kh1 Nxe1
Mar-02-09  guybrush: 23..Nf2+ is answered by 24 Kg2, right? To avoid the disastrous discovered check. After Kg2, 24...Qe6 25 Qxe6 fxe6 26 Rxd4, and black loses the knight.

  Gilmoy: Whole lotta swindlesack and zwieschentrade. And never any advantage either way. Fork you, fork me. Anand: <35.Rb6> "Beer?" Dominguez: "Yaay!" They split the bill, of course: each pay 1/2.
Mar-03-09  Hesam7: <Another favorite also had trouble with white. Vishy Anand was outprepared by Dominguez in the Cuban's favorite Grunfeld. Even Peter Svidler sounded impressed by Black's new idea with 12..Ng4 and 13..Qb8. White navigated the tactical waters well enough to emerge with a tiny endgame plus but it never looked like much.> -- Mig Greengard.
Mar-03-09  Hesam7: <11...Nbd7 (11...Nxe4 12.Nxe4 Bxe4 It is here that the analytical duels are continuing to this day, and Black succeeds in maintaining the balance in them.)> -- Kasparov, Revolution in the 70s.

<19...Qf5 (19...Qb7 might have been simpler.)> -- Dennis Monokroussos

<20...Qe4?! (20...Qf6 21.h3 e6 22.Rd6 Nxf2 23.Kxf2 g5 24.Rxa6 Rfd8 25.Qc2 gxf4 26.gxf4 Rybka Aquarium +0.00 @ depth 19)> -- chessok

Mar-19-09  Shyfe: So instead of playing 23..Nf2+ 24.Kg1 Nd6+ 25.Kh1 Nxe1 which pretty much wins, he'd rather have a draw?

  ketchuplover: 23...Nf2+ 24.Kg2!
