Sep-30-13  chessdgc2: It's time to take the bagal or bugle out now
Sep-30-13  chessdgc2: It's time to resign, Black's pieces are just too cute to kill....
Sep-30-13  PinnedPiece: 75 minutes for three moves. Too, too exciting.

Gelfand as he sometimes does is just sitting fuming, doing little else.

Or maybe its payback for Caruana's refusal to capitulate to Nakamura?

Nah, Gelfand is just frozen in disgust.


Sep-30-13  chessdgc2: chancho: There's no defense...Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away, now it looks as though they're here to stay, oh I believe in yesterday....
Sep-30-13  chessdgc2: What are you guys looking at, is Gelfand rocking the boat?
Sep-30-13  Ulhumbrus: 45 Rg3 defends the g file and resumes the threat of d7-d8/Q
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: White's King unbothered by tornado vortex of pieces above it.
Sep-30-13  Marmot PFL: 45 Rg2 should be an easy win but Caruana wants to make sure after losing yesterday.
Sep-30-13  chessdgc2: White has 1 Rg2
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: There are still ways for White to go wrong, but the traps are avoidable.
Sep-30-13  Ulhumbrus: 45 Rg2 invites 42...Be4
Sep-30-13  chessdgc2: And if ...Be4 then d8Q
Sep-30-13  Ulhumbrus: One way for White to lose is 45...Be4 46 Rg3?? Qh1 mate
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: Time for Boris to eat the bagel, walk the beagle, and wait for the bugle call Wednesday morning.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: <Ulhumbrus> -- <...Be4> True, but with a new Queen ready to roll on d8, a slight material loss elsewhere isn't so important...
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sokrates: I wonder why Gelfand doesn't kick his king now. Caruana should play with an ELO 1500 not to win this.
Sep-30-13  PinnedPiece: <tamar: Time for Boris to eat the bagel, walk the beagle, and wait for the bugle call Wednesday morning.>

You finally got to him.

Game over.

  chancho: Congrats to Caruana on a nice win!
Premium Chessgames Member Congratulations to Caruana for his nice win. We'll switch over to Ivanchuk-Nakamura in just a minute.
Sep-30-13  chessdgc2: Dom: Yes, it appeared "Gelf's R moves scared a few of us at first :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: Took a while to get there due to Gelf's tough defence, but a good win.
Sep-30-13  Conrad93: Ivanchuk had a win and made a stupid move.

He might lose this one.

Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: Nicely played by Caruana. That was not an easy position to consolidate, and Gelfand found some interesting complications.
Sep-30-13  PinnedPiece: Wow...

now I know who writes's material!!!

Sep-30-13  Ulhumbrus: <Domdaniel: <Ulhumbrus> -- <...Be4> True, but with a new Queen ready to roll on d8, a slight material loss elsewhere isn't so important...> One way for White to lose by trying to keep the material loss slight is 45...Be4 46 d7-d8/Q Bxg2 47 Rg3?? Qh1 mate
