  Chessmensch: McClain features this game in his NY Times chess column on November 7. It is available online or in print.
Nov-07-10  AnotherNN: At move 35, I thought Black could have tried 35...Nxf5 since 36.e4xN allows the reply Bxf5+ after which White loses his R. If 36.g4+ Kxg4 37.Qg1+, then Ng3.

- GM Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (on 31...Qb1!)
