  perfidious: White's twelfth move looks antipositional, and in no way an improvement over 12.Rf1, as played in E Najer vs R Pogorelov, 2002.
May-04-13  Just Another Master: damn is Arnold rated 2100? Pathetic effort!!!!!!!!!!
May-04-13  shoshonte: 23.Be4?? is a terrible blunder as well as 13. 0-0 which just drops a pawn.

Black had a very simple tactical shot after 14.Kh1? Ng3+! forking the king and rook. I predicted that Gareev would win this tournament but after over-looking that simple tactic I'm not so sure

May-04-13  OrigamiArtist: In a lot of lines of the Petrosian system white has to work hard to prove any advantage and Arnold strays from equality straight from the opening with 12.fxe5?!.

Gareev did miss a quick win with 14...Ng3! 15.hxg3 Qxg3 e.g. 16.Bf3 Bd6 17.Kg1 Bc5+ or
16.Rf3 Bxf3 17.Bxf3 Qe1+ 18.Kh2 Bd6+
