Nov-01-12  Everett: hear hear! good show! A pleasure to play through.
Nov-01-12  fisayo123: Way to put a blade in a caro-kann. This immediate c5 is interesting.
Nov-01-12  joachimvhw: Great game.

After 27. Qxf6, are there no chances at all for white to promote one of his pawns?

Nov-02-12  blitzpatzer: Followed this game at live stream yesterday and seen Ian very relax the way he moves his King during the latter part of the game. Thus, I become an instant Ian Nepomniachtchi fan!

A very nice conclusion...

Go Ian!

  paavoh: The whole match sofar has been very exciting. I hope both players will have a great future ahead.
Nov-02-12  BadKnight: very interesting game to play through.
Nov-02-12  haydn20: Playing thru without a comp, I thought 35. f4 was a blunder but later I saw that some lines, e.g., 35. Ke4 g6 36. g4 h6 37. h5 Nf6+ 38. Ke3 gh Nxh5 are worse. Black's opening seemed too passive--on the other hand, Black ended with a plus--so an exciting game I don't yet understand. (But I do hate the Caro:)
Nov-02-12  Atking: Why Black should be bad in this ending? It's N vs 2 pawns. It is more and less 0-1 or 1/2 Actually my impression is Nepomniachtchi escapes here playing on his opponent's time pressure. Maybe a better blockade is obtained by the strange looking move 31...Ng8!? (For Ne7 and Nc6 on White b6) 32.c6 Kd6 (Black wins a precious tempo over the actual game. Else Black threats 32...f5 with a passed pawn on his own side. (For if 32.Kb4 f5 33.Ka5 Kd7 ~ Ne7 should stop the pawns and e4 is always threatening). In live I saw also Andreikin very tense but it's always difficult to win such ending.
Nov-02-12  waustad: It's amazing that an opening with such a drawish reputation tends to create so many asymmetrical positions that give the chance to be games like this. ere we have a delightful draw to play through.
Nov-03-12  JamesT Kirk: chess!!fighting chess!!!wonderful chess!!!!
