Jul-13-14  waustad: It is listed as a draw some places, but I suspect that is just a typical DGT error.

  Penguincw: At first glance, I thought it was a draw since white can play 51.Rxh2, but then I looked it up and saw 51...Be6+ 52.Kc5 Rc3# 0-1. :|
Jul-13-14  The Last Straw: <Penguincw> And a relay error. :)
Jul-14-14  csmath: Nice mating net, easy to overlook.

  HeMateMe: White probably never saw the piece getting trapped, when he went pawn hunting.
Jul-14-14  centralfiles: <HeMateMe: White probably never saw the piece getting trapped, when he went pawn hunting.> actually the Knight was lost anyhow, the critical error came earlier 29.Ra7?! probably missing that after 30.Ra8+ the knight ends up being trapped, instead 29.Rxf7 keeps things messy.
Jul-14-14  Wavy: Naiditsch got whacked in the last Tata Steel tournament that I almost forgot that he is still a 2700 player capable of destroying anyone lower than that rating and there are plenty of them.
