Mar-19-14  offramp: We could call him Radaronian.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: Radaronian? Is he dangerous (beside his chess?)
Mar-19-14  chessdgc2: White wouldn't want Black's N to fork him at 1. c3 seems logical here, but this isn't the most pleasant either since this would weaken the pawns badly...perhaps 1. 'Rd1ch is better?
Mar-19-14  cro777: <Richard Taylor: The woman GM (cant write her name) who is commentating with her husband Heine...>

In 2013 GM Viktorija Èmilytė married Danish Grandmaster Peter Heine Nielsen. Before, she was married to Shirov.

Mar-19-14  chessdgc2: Hmmm, wonder if Heine is better with the Romantics?
Mar-19-14  cro777: Anand has now c3 and f3 followed by Bf2

White to move: <29. c3> would prevent a knight fork. But White has other options as well.

  Richard Taylor: I knew that but I couldn't see her name as a typed. I hate those strange Russian or Hungarian names what is wrong with Smith, Robinson or Taylor?

  keypusher: Catching up. 22....Nxc3 looked good to me.
Mar-19-14  cro777: Viktorija Èmilytė (born 1983 in Šiauliai) is a Lithuanian chess player.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: You mean she was born in one of those strange and dark places where everything is paradox and no one eats fish and chips or MacDonalds.
Mar-19-14  chessdgc2: cro777: Yes, I've across her name before and may have even looked at a couple of her games...not sure just how great she is amongst the women and will look into it later...thanks for sharing this with us
Mar-19-14  DcGentle: <<keypusher>: Catching up. 22....Nxc3 looked good to me.>

Well, after <22... Nxc3 23. Rh7> Black's g-pawn is hard to defend.

Mar-19-14  cro777: Richard must love this. Lithuania’s fourth city, Šiauliai was first mentioned in rhyme in 1236 in reference to a savage battle between the then Lithuanian tribes and the Sword Brothers, a particularly nasty bunch of monks working for the Bishop of Riga.
Mar-19-14  DcGentle: Draw agreed.
Mar-19-14  DcGentle: Final position:

White has space advantage and Black's mobility is worse, so after all I thought that White would go on for a while.

Mar-19-14  cro777: Anand draws while Topalov seems to be winning against Kramnik!
Mar-19-14  ossipossi: Looks like there is no way for White to attack K-side without freeing B-Rook and leaving an unattended Q-side.
Mar-19-14  waustad: I've seen her name spelled this way: Viktorija Čmilytė, but never before with the E and accent. Then again, what computers do with non-ASCII characters often gets odd.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: Fascinating. I have met Latvians and Estonians (mostly in the chess world) as well as Hungarians. Most of these were good chess players and or eccentrics although to be fair I have been nominated as rather odd by some rather nasty people...

I have read that there was a large Latvian / Lithuanian empire at one stage...

Mar-19-14  Ulhumbrus: Instead of 11 Bf4, 11 Bg5 offers to exchange the black squared bishops in the event of ...Be7
Premium Chessgames Member
  AylerKupp: Viktorija Èmilytë was married to Alexei Shirov from 2001 to 2007 and they had 2 children. If genes count in chess, those are 2 children to watch!
Mar-20-14  waustad: And their step dad is Peter Heine Nielsen

  whiteshark: "The only drawback of the solid system with h5 is Black’s total lack of ambition."
