  thegoodanarchist: wow, a huge tactical error from an elite player. maybe he knew already at this point that he was done with top-flight chess and on to a real-money career...
Apr-13-22  jerseybob: it was tactically safe to leave the knight on f4 if white kept the delicate balance, but while hoping for a blunder from black he fell asleep at the wheel. Big time.
Apr-13-22  boz: Move 36, likely time trouble.
Apr-13-22  jerseybob: The self-pin 34.Kf2 is certainly bad and I was gonna suggest 34.Nd5 instead, but the more I look at this game I think white's problems go deeper than a one-move blunder. So my first post was a little superficial...not the first time I've done that! The black knight entrenched on e5 is very strong and white's k-side is very weak, due in large part to his h4/5xg6 maneuver. If only white had the move h3 available!
