Kibitzer's Corner
May-25-09  Oblivi0n: Susanto Megaranto, the team's best hopeful, could only finish in 39th place spoiling his bid for his second chance in the championship.

The Philippines outing witnessed an uncontrolled burst of disappointment when he ripped off the annotation piece after he lost to Yu Yangyi of China in the 10th round.

May-25-09  Gilmoy: <27.Nh2> offers a "poisoned" pawn -- White invites Black to half-open the h-file <and> lose some tempi. Amazingly, Black thinks he can take it and live. White inevitably doubles on h, and uses the free discovery for <30.Nf3 31.Ne5>, with a "huge" K-side attack -- or is it?

Alas, Megaranto seems to go astray with a faulty Queenhunt -- <33.Rh5> does "trap" Black's Q, but Yu simply sells her for R+N+P!P! (! = passed). Then Yu has a rolling fortress vs. Megaranto's awful Bb2, so White was almost down a full piece the whole time. Perhaps Yu thought that was always enough to hobble White's attack?

<44.Bc1 46.Bd2> returned all of the "free" tempi White gained earlier, and he's <still> two moves behind.
