Mar-01-11  luzhin: If 19.Qg4 Rxg4 20.hxg4 Ne2 mate!
Mar-01-11  parisattack: Ouch! Another example of passive/aimless play by white in a hypermodern opening. (See also, Spassky-Larsen 1. b3 debacle.)
Mar-02-11  theodor: 18. cxR!!!?
Mar-02-11  KingV93: Two Queen sacrifices in the same tournament for Dzagnidze, nice!

  al wazir: 19. Qg4 Rxg4 20. hxg4 Nxd4. Now what?
Mar-06-11  luzhin: If you look at my note at the top, al wazir, you will see that after 19.Qg4 Rxg4 20.hxg4 the correct move is 20...Ne2 mate.
Mar-17-11  ReikiMaster: 10.Bb2 looks ok. 16.Nd5 looks interesting. 17...Rxd5! 18.Qg4 Rxg5! 19.Qxf4 was worth trying.
