May-15-11  luzhin: After 32.Rh6 Re1+ 33.Kg2 Rg8 will do nicely for Black.
May-15-11  Shams: After 28.Qh6:

Black has been playing against white's DSB much of the game and now just wants to rip it off, but Chucky makes time for the subtle defensive move 28...Nc6!

White plays on as if nothing has happened, but his threat to force a draw has in fact just vanished. With a hanging piece, no perpetual in hand and a king as drafty as black's, he should reverse course.

29. Nxh7? Qxh7 30. Rxg6+ Kh8 31.Qg5 Rxe3 and now 32.Rh6? Re1+ and 33...Rg8 but white had to resign after 32.Rg8+ Rxg8, since his defensive idea fails. There will be no miracle trapeze act on the d8-h4 diagonal-- black's knight on c6 sees to that.

May-15-11  Shams: Dammit, luzhin, you just snuck that in under mine!
May-15-11  Pygeum Lycopene: <his threat to force a draw has in fact just vanished>

what is the drawing line Dmitry was hoping for before 28...Nc6 (?)

May-16-11  Shams: <Pygeum Lycopene> White has a nifty perpetual check threat. Here is a shadow position after 31...Rxe3, identical to the game continuation except that instead of 28...Nc6 Black has 'passed' with ...a5-a4.

Now White's idea is to sacrifice his rook to force Black to block his king's last remaining light square, and then thematically checking at f6, d8, and h4 forcing a draw right in the teeth of black's lethal heavy pieces. And since the rook check comes with tempo, 32.Rg8+! is in fact a miracle save for white: 32...Rxg8 33.Qf6+ etc., or 32...Qxg8 33.Qh6+ , the same idea but one diagonal in, a very pleasing aesthetic echo:

May-16-11  nolanryan: she plays not bad for someone who is clinically blind. but ivanchuk is too good, and has never lost to any blind person I think
May-17-11  Shams: Andreikin is well sighted I believe.
May-25-11  Sem: <nolanryan> Who is 'she'? Surely not Andreikin, since Dmitri is a boy's name, I'm sure, I hope, I guess? Gender life is becoming difficult for a Dutch simpleton. I know a little girl named Imre, and then think of Hungarian prime minister Imre Nagy. Worst of all, some people over here named their son Ilyitch, absurd of course, since that is only a patronym. Will 2012 end all name giving?!

It's understandable that Dmitry missed it under time pressure.
