  Eyal: Position after 26.Nxc5:

Had Vitiugov not been in bad time trouble, he would surely have noticed that <26...Qa5+!> is winning (on move 28 as well): 27.Bd2 Nf3+ and mate on d2; or 27.Kd1 Bf3+; or 27.Qc3 Qxc3+ 28.bxc3 Nc2+ 29.Ke2 f3#; or 27.b4 Qxb5 and now 28.Qxb5 leads to the same mate in two as in the previous line.

  HeMateMe: Svid's King really looked exposed. I was surprised to see him get away.
Aug-21-12  baptiste187: 19...Qc6 also winning.

He would be winning, but unfortunately for him the pawn is on a3, so that move is impossible...

Oct-18-12  Ken MacGillivray: Thanks for clearing that up.

  wordfunph: "I guess Vitiugov got a few extra gray hairs after he came back to his room, turning on his computer which told him: You missed a mate in 4! I can only repeat myself: Chess is a tough game!"
