  HeMateMe: Wow, Gris really outplayed him in the early middle game. Tactical overload.
Sep-11-11  sevenseaman: <16. Qa4+> is unsound. <Navara> may have reached the limit of his ambition in the tournament. His choice to go for 'a' and 'b' Ps rather than castle cost him the game.

Who will buy <Navara> did not see 16...b5?

After this adventure from White, Black had a simple, almost forcing win. And Grischuk kept it error-free.

  Honza Cervenka: David's problems arose from the fact that he completely missed 15...d4. Instead od 15.Bd3 he should have played 15.0-0 with fine position. Also 16.0-0 was probably a lesser evil than 16.Qa4+ but it would be quite difficult decision to go into a position where white is struggling for draw in ending without a Pawn just after opening.
