  thegoodanarchist: I wonder how long it took white to find his last move. Did he see it instantly? Did he feel something was amiss and study for a bit to see it? Wish I had been a spectator in the audience!

  thegoodanarchist: Also, @, the date is wrong. I am fairly sure Mamedyarov didn't play this when he was 10 years old.

  thegoodanarchist: And as soon as I refreshed to see my post, the date is now correct! Now <THAT> is premium member service :)
Jun-19-14  solskytz: The Nd5 "jump" is a classic element in the Qa5-Qd2 faceoff. White moves K to b1 with that in mind, certainly (other wise black will have Queen takes d2 CHECK)- only that black misses it.

If they could just get the scoring of events correct, I'd agree with you.

Jun-20-14  Nerwal: Black's position was already very difficult, close to lost, and white just had to centralize his pieces with obvious moves (♘f3, ♗d3, ♖hf1). It was very hard to find a decent move, and black probably forgot for a second her king needed the d7 square to escape a c7 ♘ check. Maybe 10... a6 preparing b5 was the best practical chance.

Aronin vs Kantarovich, 1960
