  whiteshark: Un tiens vaut mieux que deux tu l'auras.
Apr-24-09  MarbleSkull: Does Bacrot ever hurry an attack?
Apr-24-09  messachess: A very nice 4-move combination to end the game. Good for Bacrot.
Apr-24-09  Illogic: I like the Bd2-e1 maneuver. Two seemingly quiet bishop retreats but deadly!
Apr-25-09  kurtrichards: White's 10. e4 and 11. Qg4 are the key moves to victory. Kingside castling is denied to Black and therefore the Black king seeks haven in the queenside where it is subjected to attack by white's heavy and minor artilleries.

  Mateo: 20...Kd8? was a blunder. Of course, Mamedyarov wanted to unpinn his Knight. But he allowed a killing pinn on the open file. After this blunder it is a forced win for White. Better was 20...Rc8 preparing Bc6.
Mar-09-13  wachter123680: white won quicker with 17. Bd2
Mar-09-13  wachter123680: but he realized that at 22. oh well. a win with even a blunder. guess it happens at tournas. Lige
Mar-09-13  fokers13: Qxa4 and white is losing.

Think before you speak.

  Garech: Fantastic game from Bacrot; worthy of GOTD.


Mar-20-14  Xeroxx: white using the bishops to get the advantage, then the knight to finish it off.
