Sep-08-11  Shams: I have to like Polgar in the rapid matches today. She should have a psychological edge coming off her brilliant equalizing win, and I see her higher class telling. A win with white, then a comfortable draw, you heard it here first.
Premium Chessgames Member Welcome to the rapid tiebreaks for Polgar-Dominguez. The games should be starting in just a few minutes. Remember to click on the <Live video feed> option to the right of the board to receive the excellent audiovisual coverage.
Sep-08-11  kellmano: <shams> I think an over-optimistic attack and a defeat in game one.
Sep-08-11  Hesam7: <kellmano: <shams> I think an over-optimistic attack and a defeat in game one.>

That already happened ...

Sep-08-11  Shams: Stockfish has no problems with Judit's play so far, but that isn't to say that she's necessarily fine either.
Sep-08-11  Shams: Xiangzhi Bu already has a pretty bad position, down a pawn and position in a queenless middlegame against Ivanchuk.
Sep-08-11  crafty: 12. axb5 axb5 13. ♖xa8+ ♗xa8 14. exd6 b4 15. ♘e4   (eval 1.04; depth 14 ply; 150M nodes)
Sep-08-11  Shams: A pawn is a pawn, but two bishops like that must count for something.
Sep-08-11  culei: Qa5 should be enough
Sep-08-11  hedgeh0g: Looks like a draw is imminent...
Sep-08-11  Hesam7: <hedgeh0g: Looks like a draw is imminent...>


Sep-08-11  Shams: On 19.Qb4! white has a winning advantage.
Sep-08-11  hedgeh0g: Because the queenside is about to be liquidated and the resulting position doesn't seem to hold much for either side. I might be missing something, but it just looks a little stale to me.
Sep-08-11  hedgeh0g: OK I missed Qb4!...
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: Wow! Looks like Judit saw 19 Qb4 a while back.
Sep-08-11  whiteshark: A semipennate game now
Sep-08-11  Strongest Force: Push that sucker to b7
Sep-08-11  crafty: 32. ... ♗d4+ 33. ♕xd4 ♕xb7 34. ♘f8+ ♔g8 35. ♕d8   (eval 6.15; depth 14 ply; 100M nodes)
Sep-08-11  Strongest Force: If she could win yesterday, today should be a piece of cake
Sep-08-11  waustad: Both Cubans lost.
Sep-08-11  whiteshark: Cuban woodpeckers

  perfidious: It's always difficult to play after a tough defeat, and Dominguez does not show to advantage in this game, overlooking the trick 19.Qb4, after which he stood clearly worse.
Sep-08-11  whiteshark: Zigars for the boyz, they both fought back into the tiebreaks.
Sep-08-11  sevenseaman: I thought Polgar was gone. Is the 4rth round 4 games?
Sep-08-11  whiteshark: Finally both Cubans lost their respective second 5 min blitz game and thus dropped out.
