Jul-03-11  sofouuk: 23 ... Ne5??

... oops, as they say

Jul-03-11  Atking: Yes but 24,Be3 is elegant. And 23...Nxb2 24.RxRc8 RxRc8 (24...NxQa4? 25.RxRe8+ is crushing) 25.Qd7 Rf8 28.Be3 looks simply good for White. Bishops pair, safer king more active pieces

  Gilmoy: <ketchuplover: 24...Rxc1> 25.Bxb6. White's Rd1 is protected twice, Black's Re8 is hanging. 25..Rxd1 26.Bxd1 and Black has no time to take the Bb6.
Jul-04-11  Atking: Why not simply 25.QxRe8+ <Gilmoy>?
Jul-04-11  Veryrusty: If <24. ... Rxc1>, 25. Qxe8+ looks rather convincing.
Jul-05-11  JamesT Kirk: ...and after 21.../f5 what can Giri play?
Jul-05-11  Atking: maybe d6 then Be2

  nezhmet: 21... f5? 22. d6! splat, 1-0.

Earlier, Swinkely Winkely missed the chance for a golden confusion TN: 10...c5! TN 11. Qxc5 Rc8 with the intention of taking on c3 with the rook on any queen move.

Jul-10-11  cjgone: Ouch complicated win, I would have never seen it coming.
Jul-11-11  haydn20: Is 15...g3 new in this line? In any case, 15...Rac8 looks like the beginning of a bad plan. Does anyone have an opinion of 23...Qc5 or of this line in general?
Jul-11-11  Atking: <TN: 10...c5! TN 11. Qxc5 Rc8 with the intention of taking on c3 with the rook on any queen move.> Pretty interesting. I can see that 12.Qxa7? RxNc3 13.bxR Nxe4 is pleasant for Black, but what if Anish plays back 12.Qb4 ?
Jul-11-11  Atking: <Does anyone have an opinion of 23...Qc5> Surely 24.Be3. And about the most difficult part ot your question, 15.g3 looks good among reasonable moves.
Mar-02-12  lentement: 23...Qc5 24.b4 Qxg5 25.Rxc4 Rcd8 26.Qxa7 White has the better position and an extra pawn

  Penguincw: Nice game. If let's say 24...♕a6, then 25.Qxa6 bxa6 26.Bxe6+ looks strong. Or maybe there's something even better here.
