  luzhin: I understand why Black played 58...h4 -- to give luft for his King-- but putting his h pawn on the same colour as Aronian's bishop meant it was bound to be snaffled; and the resulting two connected passed pawns were (eventually!) decisive.

  horncabbage: This proves that queen of opposite colors is not an automatic draw.
Jun-14-10  Everett: <horncabbage> Want to try that again?
Nov-02-10  knightmare949: In the endgame black should have concentrated on capturing whites b2 pawn
