Nov-25-09  ounos: Payback time against Nyback.
Nov-26-09  paavoh: Perhaps 22. - Ra8 was better? Anyone with analysis/comments?
Nov-27-09  notyetagm: Awesome game by Svidler.

  Breunor: Paavoh, I think 22 Ra8 is refuted by 23 Bb6 winning the exchange or the knight on a5. Nd7 protects b6.

  Breunor: I actually think black is already in trouble after 20 Bh6. I don't think black has a good answer; on Rd8, as he played, white has the actual line, with Be3 effectively forcing Nd7.

If black played 20 Re8 instead of Be8, then white has 21 Ng5; black no longer can defend with 21 Be8.

So I think he was already in bad shape by move 20.

Jan-03-10  Smothered Mate: 22... Ra8 23. Bb6 Rxa6 24. Bxc7 Rc8
and I don't see white winning the exchange or a knight.

  Breunor: Oh, sorry, I was looking at 21 ... Ra8, 'saving' the pawn. After 22 .. Ra8 I guess white would just retreat the queen.
