May-10-13  ceebo: A computer line where white gets two queens but black manages to force a win:

29...Qe5!? 30.b6 e3 31.b7? (31.Re1 holds) Bxg2+! 32.Kxg2 Rd2+ 33.Kf3 Qxf5+ 34.Kg3 Qxf1 35.b8=Q+ Kh7 36.Qaa8 (36.Qxe3 Rg2+ 37.Kh4 g5+ 38.Kh5 Qf5 and white gets mated) Qf2+ 37.Kh3 Qf5+ 38.Kg3 Qg5+ 39.Kf3 Qg2+ 40.Kf4 Qxh2+ 41.Ke4 Qh1+ 42.Ke5 (42.Kf4 Qh4+ 43.Kf3 Qh3+ 44.Ke4 Qe6+ transposes) Qh5+ 43.Ke4 Qg4+ 44.Qf4 Qe6+ 45.Qe5 e2 46.Qa1 Rd6!

and black will end up the exchange and a few pawns.

May-10-13  lost in space: I like the way black handled the opening. Have a look to the position after 6...d6

Cool and not allowing anything.

May-10-13  beenthere240: It's not often that you see a Vienna these days. 38. h3! avoiding mate in 1.
May-10-13  Wyatt Gwyon: The Vienna's a bit underrated and under-analyzed. Wouldn't be surprised to see it show up a bit more in top-flight competition.
May-11-13  Lutwidge: I play the Vienna a lot as White, but never expected to see it in such a game as this. Carlsen's line with ...Bc5 and an early ...Na5 has been increasingly popular of late and has somewhat dampened my enthusiasm for the opening in general, so it's nice to see Naka finding a way to make things a bit more interesting.
