Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-24-10  Hesam7: This was Bacrot's third win in a row! I think nobody expected that from the lowest rated player in the field.
Oct-24-10  Akavall: Nice to see Bacrot do well.
Oct-24-10  lost in space: very nice indeed.
Oct-24-10  Bobsterman3000: 30. Kh2 was not liked by the engines. I wonder why Wang passed up on 30. Bxd6, which the engines give a +.

His line culminated in trading 3 badly disconnected pawns for a piece.

Oct-24-10  percyblakeney: <30. Kh2 was not liked by the engines.>

And with very good reasons...

  tpstar: So Carlsen does well with 29. Kh2! while Yue flails with 30. Kh2?!

Chess is a hard game. =)

  al wazir: Why not 30. Bxd6 ? (White took the ♙ three moves later, but that was after giving up a piece.) If 30...e5, then 31. Bf8!

  Sastre: I don't think there is anything wrong with 30.Bxd6, but Black can win the pawn back with <30...Rad8 31.Bf4 Rxd2 32.Rxd2 Rxd2 33.Bxd2 Bd3 34.Ne3 Nd6>.

  Eyal: <30.Bxd6 Rad8 31.Bf4 Rxd2 32.Rxd2 Rxd2 33.Bxd2 Bd3 34.Ne3 Nd6>

Yeah, this line should probably lead to a draw, which seems like the "logical result" of this game. <30.Kh2??> instead was indeed the losing mistake, since it blunders a piece - if 31.Be3 then 31...Rg7 32.Nh6 (or 32.Kh3 Bf5) 32...f5 followed sooner or later by ...f4.
