Oct-02-11  Shams: <This was a Gruenfeld of questionable theoretical significance. Mamedyarov's plan 11...b6 (rare) 12.Qd2 Rd8 13.Bh6 Qd6 (practically a novelty) looks extremely slow, and it's not surprising that Black got butchered by a kingside attack.> -- Dennis Monokroussos

Did Black resign due to 32.Rce1 coming next?

  Gilmoy: The line I doodled goes 32.Rf6 Qxe5 <anything else 33.e6> 33.Nxf7+ <elaborate hook-and-ladder + back rank> 33..Rfxf7 34.Rxf7 <White hangs two, Black has no time to take either one> Kg8 <only defense against Rc8+> 35.Qxe5 Rxe5 36.Rxa7 Re8[] 37.Rcc7 looks overwhelming.

Plus, this line looks like something Shak himself would play. So he'd certainly see it (too late!), and respect it. I guess he noticed Bacrot staring at f6, and just assumed he'd find it too.

Oct-02-11  Shams: Nice line. I briefly looked down that road too, rats.
