Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-25-13  Jason Frost: Ouch tough loss, guessing time trouble.
Jun-25-13  luzhin: Time trouble or not, 37.c3?? was definitely a howler.
Jun-25-13  Edmontonchessclub: GM Hansen said that he was winning if he played something else besides 37...c3??, but I didn't hear what his winning move was. He's up a pawn, but it didn't look easy to win.
Jun-25-13  dumbgai: My plan for white would be to play Ng1-f3-e5, driving the black king away from the g6 square and allowing f5 to be played.
Jun-25-13  Edmontonchessclub: Dumbgai,

Black can wait for Hansen to carry out that plan, then on Ne5+, he trades knights and plays ...b3! Black wins in that case, creating a winning passed pawn.

So Hansen would have to prepare this plan carefully, to somehow not allow black to create a passed pawn.

Jun-25-13  dumbgai: Doesn't seem to take such careful preparation. Instead of 37. c3?? the simple b3 stops black's queenside plans.
Jun-25-13  Edmontonchessclub: Well, it's more careful than GM Hansen was...
Yes, b3 looks like a good move.
He was probably reluctant to allow so many pawns to be traded. But it looks good.
Jun-25-13  Edmontonchessclub: According to FM Doroshenko, this is his first win, ever, against a GM.
Jun-26-13  Edmontonchessclub: From GM Hansen's Twitter, after this game:

"What a disaster. Probably the worst blunder in my career. Not sure what's wrong with me lately."


"On serious tilt right now and not sure what to do with myself."

"I'm still in shock that I played c3 in this position."
