Mar-28-12  deave: poor performance by Giri! :(
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: Giri didn't want to allow a repetition with the natural 29 Qg6 Nh8 30 Qh5 Nhf7, and chose the awful 29 Re2

Won today I believe.

Mar-28-12  Whitehat1963: Two big upsets with black against Giri in one tournament.
Mar-28-12  Albertan: "Fourth seed, 18-year-old Dutchman Anish Giri (2717, NED) is still having a terrible time in this tournament. He suffered his third loss today, this time with the white pieces against Hungarian Tamas Fodor (2482, HUN). His rating performance is 2438 and he stands to lose 25 point on the FIDE list." source:

  Penguincw: I think Giri should take a break from chess for a while because TWO bad tournaments in a row seems to be showing fatigue.
