Jan-24-10  dakgootje: As I posted at the Corus-tournament page:

Very convincing play by Giri, even though -looking at the time used unto around the 23rd move- there might have been a fair deal of home preperation. By that point Giri had virtually the same amount of time left that he had started with [due to the 30s-increments per move], while howell was down to about 30 minutes.

Howell was worse right out of the opening, still he apparently wanted to drag it out a little longer..

  luzhin: 18.Ng5!! was a devastating TN -- previously White had played 18.Qxe4; but Black is absolutely lost after Giri's improvement. Howell should rethink his stubborn adherence to the Grunfeld Defence, or at least develop an alternative: at the moment he presents a stationary target to 1.d4 players

Yeah, apparently one of the players in this game analyzed A Moiseenko vs T L Petrosian, 2009 and the other one didn't...
