Oct-19-10  Shams: Looks pretty grim for Tukhaev. He may have flagged looking for the saving move that isn't there. Very well played game from Karjakin. 16.Bb5+ is nice.

  Sastre: I think White is threatening 31.h6+ and 31.Nc6. For example if 30...Rxa2, then 31.h6+ Kh8 32.Nc6 Qd7 33.Qf6#.

The only defence against 31.h6+ seems to be 30...h6. But then White has 31.hxg6 fxg6 32.Nxe6+ Qxe6 (32...Kh8 33.Qxh6+ Qh7 34.Rxg8+ Kxg8 35.Qf8#) 33.Qf8+ Kh7 34.Rc7+.
