Oct-12-11  beenthere240: 30. a4! is brilliant. If he plays Kg2 etc the win is another 20 moves in the future.
Oct-12-11  sicilianhugefun: White's proud knight at d6 simply outclassed black's bishop on an open board. This is a magnificent positional gem of Alexander Morozevich!
Oct-14-11  xanadu: I guess the problems for Black started with 10...f5. Black should prepared the thematic ...f6 instead, previously with c5xd4
