  whiteshark: I'd prefer immediate action with <12...h4>, e.g. <13.h3 f6 14.exf6 gxf6> and Black stands very well.

  Mateo: The turning point was 25...Qb7?!. Black has to play 25...Qa6! to impede a4, disrupting his pawn structure in front of his King.
Dec-23-16  Saniyat24: Tremendous defense by Grischuk facing dangerous counter attack of Kasimdzanov. A memorable finish...!
