Nov-17-09  luzhin: Amazing middle game pyrotechnics by Aronian's QN: a5-c4-e5-g4-f2-h3-f4! Leko had to play 27.Rbc1 covering c3 -- when he missed that threat he was cooked.
Dec-10-09  AnotherNN: This gotta be one of the best blitz games ever! CG should make it a GOTD one day.

Try predicting *any* of Aronian's middlegame moves!

Aronian: Tactical Genius.
