Sep-07-12  Nilsson: 11...Rxd2!
Sep-07-12  Calar: And White must either allow 19...Bd5+ or lose his queen, so he resigned.

I normally like watching attacking chess, but what Sutovsky played here is mindless aggression, hack attack that surely won't work against 2691 rated opponent.

Sep-08-12  latvalatvian: Sutovsky played very well. I will imitate his play since he is better than me.
Sep-08-12  Xeroxx: This is ridiculous.

Black has just captured a White knight on e5 with 10 ... ♘d7x♘e5. How do you recapture?

11 d4x♘e5?? <line-opening: d8-d2>

ANSWER: not the way Sutovsky (White) did!

11 ... ♖d8x♗d2! <decoy: pin>

11 d4x♘e5?? ♖d8x♗d2! is an *unbelievable* tactical oversight for someone as tactically strong as Sutovsky.

What a disaster for the Israeli team: their board 2 is dead lost <WITH WHITE> after only 11 moves!!
