Sep-03-12  computer chess guy: This was an important game: Movsesian's win allowed the Armenian team to tie with Russia.

Houdini 1.5 thinks 31. .. g3 was an error and Black should have played .. Kh8, unpinning the Bishop.

Later on, 40. Ne2! is interesting, possibly better than Nf5, although White won anyway.

Sep-05-12  PYCJacobson: This game is insanely complicated (esp. from around move 25)!

  whiteshark: <ccg> <31...Nxa3+> was worth a try, too.

  HeMateMe: Quite a battle, Gris seemed to look better, in the early middle game. I think advancing his kingside defensive pawns weakened his position too much.
