Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-17-10  manakin: Such inspired play from this young fellow. 24...g6 and the artful 30...Bxh3 (31.gxh3 f3 and if 32.Re3 Qg5+ and mate) were the cherries on top.
Jan-17-10  zanshin: Great game by the youngest GM in the world! While <30...Bxh3!> was a good tactical shot, Nisi blundered with <31.Qc3?> which opened him up to all sorts of nasty threats involving the discovered attack via ...Nf3+.
Jan-17-10  pulsar: Nisipeanu's opening choice seems to indicate he wanted to win against Giri's Petroff. The older player played dearly for his offbeat opening choice.
Jan-17-10  shintaro go: Two straight games have GMs blundered against Giri.
Jan-17-10  jia: When 1? min left on the clock Nisi plays Qc3?!. Bg4! - Would be a monday puzzle.
Jan-18-10  Ulhumbrus: After 13...Bd7 White has more space but it is White's minor pieces which are placed awkwardly and Black's minor pieces which are placed well. One of the reasons for this may be that Black is ahead of White in development.

With 24...g6 Black offers White the h6 pawn. If White accepts it, on 25 Qxh6 Nf7 traps the White Queen.

31...Bg4 threatens not only to capture the R on e2 but threatens as well ( eg if White plays 32 f3) 32...Nxf3+ discovering an attack upon White's Queen with check.

Under pressure I would say however! White didn't look too good here..

Jan-18-11  sevenseaman: Giri escalates the pressure as he goes each move. It tells.
Jul-13-11  James Bowman: If anyone on the horizion shines as bright as Magnus it's Giri, just hard to imagine he could play like this already.
