Apr-08-13  messachess: First impression is that this is a quite profound, deeply considered win by Moro. Games like this are the reason I'm a fan.

But next, of course, comes the detailed analysis. After work.

Apr-08-13  fisayo123: Moro is Mr.Unorthodox and Mr.Unique. What a double-edged set-up in a QGD! Most Super-GM's wouldn't even consider putting their pieces on those squares. Is the rook maneuver new?
Apr-09-13  polonius: Leave it up to the ineffable imagination and creativity of Mr. Morozevich to make life OTB as interesting,pressure-filled and wild as possible ! Nice game !
Apr-09-13  shivasuri4: Brilliant game from Morozevich! Amazing how he creates and handles chaos on the board.

25...Qxd4 instead of the more natural Rhf8 was a pretty bad miss, allowing Morozevich to exploit the hole on g6 and render the h8 rook lifeless for a long time.

34.Rd1 left the rook on c5 unguarded, and that should have been exploited with 34...Nd3+ 35.Rxd3 Qb4+, letting black win the exchange.

Apr-09-13  JohnBoy: Great, imaginative play by Moro. This is when we love him!
Apr-09-13  positionalgenius: Trademark Morozevich... So much imagination.
Apr-10-13  Just Another Master: Win or lose, Moros' games are a work of art more than any player I have ever watched. Thank you chess god(s) for creating him. And thank you Moro for being who you are.

  HeMateMe: cool. Moro takes a typical QGA and turns it into a tactical slugfest.
