Aug-08-14  spysfi: 20. Ng5 is an insane Sunday puzzle
Aug-08-14  fisayo123: Pretty incredible play from Grischuk here. Surely one of his best ever games. 20.Ng5!!, 22.e6!, 24.Bf5!!. Amazing vision and combinations. He had to see the entire thing to the end.
Aug-08-14  paavoh: What an onslaught by Grischuk - in comparison with the very meek opening play by Kramnik today...

  Mating Net: Yes, 20.Ng5! is an outstanding move. There is no Rook on the h file to join the fray that is often the case when Black captures on g5 with the h pawn. Grischuk showed great tactical vision to deliver mate. Definitely a combination worthy of study/analysis.
Aug-08-14  detritus: And 26… Ne5 is met by 27. Qh8+ Bf8, 28. Rxe5+ Qxe5, 29. Qxe5+ Be7, 30 Rg8#. Superb.
Aug-09-14  mrandersson: Ng5 is a very stand out move. Any one think if this was some home prep or real over the board idea?

Im sure give it a few hours people with muti Xeons and 32+gigs of ram will give some good analysis on the idea.

Sep-17-14  paavoh: Grischuk solved his Gordian Knot here...
Oct-04-14  Ke2: Sweet game. Sweet mate.
Oct-04-14  Ke2: Already added to his notable games too.

  whiteshark: Grischuk played a very interesting novelty during the Olympiad in Tromso: <10. O-O ♘c6 11. ♘b3!> Although b3 isn't usually a dream square for a knight, in this case the knight serves the important function of safeguarding the d3-bishop from a black knight jumping to c5. White's piece setup is very instructive... and dangerous for Black! <11... cxd4 12. ♖e1 ♕b6 13. ♗f4 a5 14. ♖ad1 ♘c5 15. ♘xc5 ♕xc5 16. ♕e2> The e5-pawn splits the board in two, making it difficult for the black pieces to take care of their king. In the game Grischuk managed to crush Filippov. <16... ♖d8 17. h4 ♔f8 18. ♖c1 ♕b6 19. cxd5 exd5 20. ♘g5! hxg5 21. ♕h5! ♔e8 22. e6!> Lines open up towards the black king and there's no way it can escape. <22... ♗xe6 23. ♖xe6 gxf4 24. ♗f5 g6 25. ♖xg6 ♕c7 26. ♖e1 fxg6 27. ♕h8+ ♔f7 28. ♗e6# 1-0>
