Feb-17-14  hcgflynn: some interesting moves here:

34. bxd6 seems fine.
after 36. rb6 white looks definitely better.
i guess 40. nd3 is a blunder (time trouble?), after 40. g3 the position is quite =.

Feb-17-14  gaviero55: This guy's on fire! Clear 1st after 7 rounds.
Feb-17-14  gaviero55: I think Black is still for choice after 40.g3 with 40...Qh2.
Feb-17-14  hcgflynn: <gaviero55> indeed, i miscalculated that line a bit, but i think it is far from a lost game for white.

  whiteshark: 8.exd5 makes it a KI.
Feb-18-14  hedgeh0g: Jobava is a man on fire right now; the man plays like a modern-day Misha Tal.
Feb-19-14  xanadu: Ok, Black has the attack, but must still play correctly to win.
