  luzhin: No idea whether Ivanchuk lost on time, but he's lost on the board anyway. Very bold TN by Svidler with 13.g4!? -- and the bayonet attack worked, as the final position demonstrates.
Apr-16-09  bane77: Why did he give up 19...Bh1? I see 20.Nh4 g5 21.f3 gxh4 22.Kh1 and now maybe Nxg4? White cannot take fxg4 soon so on Rg1 there is h5. It is a sharp position.
Apr-16-09  humangraymatter: 29.Ke2 Qf6 30.Qxf6 gxf6 31.Kxe1 Nf3 32.Kd1 white has a big advantage because his king is much closer to the enemy pawns.
Apr-16-09  humangraymatter: <bane77: Why did he give up 19...Bh1? I see 20.Nh4 g5 21.f3 gxh4 22.Kh1 and now maybe Nxg4? > if 22...Ng4? 23.Rg1 h5 24.h3 c5 25.hxg4 c4 26.gxh5 Kh7 27.Ba2 Qxa2 28.Qxd4 and white has a big advantage.

  Eyal: 22.Bxe6+ rather than an immediate 22.g5! was an inaccuracy by Svidler, since the removal of the bishop from b3 allows Black to take over the initiative with 23...Qa4! By this stage, however, Ivanchuk was already in desperate time trouble and couldn't handle the position seriously anymore. In the end he flagged, but he's lost anyway.

  luzhin: humangraymatter, after 29.Ke2 Qf6 White will play 30.Bf5!

Hehe

According to the report on the official page:

  luzhin: Of course, if Ivanchuk had tried 28...Bd2 then 29.hxg7+ Qxg7 30.Qh5+ Qh7 31.Be5+ and mate next move.

  Mateo: <humangraymatter: 29.Ke2 Qf6 30.Qxf6 gxf6 31.Kxe1 Nf3 32.Kd1 white has a big advantage because his king is much closer to the enemy pawns.> Even stronger is 30.Bf5, threatening Qe8 mate. If 30...Bc6 31.Qxc7! works.
May-01-09  cornflake: This a very nice handling of the Ruy Lopez by GM Svidler. White's plan of playing to get a knight to f5 followed by a kingside bayonnet attack was stronger than black's plan to bring pressure on e4. A very impressive game.
