  luzhin: ...except that Howell (and indeed Van Wely) missed 30.Rxc4!
Aug-17-09  kingfu: Excellent work, luzhin! It took a while to realize that the knight is pinned! It is rare to see that sort of pin, which is probably why everyone missed it! White wins a Sicilian in which the D pawn never moves!
Aug-17-09  aragorn69: Ugh! What an ugly game (from both sides actually).
Aug-17-09  tibone: <aragorn69: Ugh! What an ugly game (from both sides actually).> itīs modern chess!
