  perfidious: <SF> lmao
Oct-26-14  cornflake: Very nice attacking game by Jobava.
Oct-26-14  zoren: On cursory glance, looked like a club level Bxh3 / Bxh6 sacrifice where the victim just rolls over and loses.

Where did Karjakin go wrong?

Oct-26-14  Mr. V: I think we know which game receives the brilliancy prize this tournament.

Oct-26-14  Jim Bartle: <Where did Karjakin go wrong?>

According to Daniel King, he still had a chance with 30. Nh3. He also pointed out a lot of tricky white defenses that Jobava had to avoid, several based on an exposed attack on the queen by the b3 rook.

Oct-26-14  SirRuthless: Jobava from worst to 2nd in this event though five rounds. Impressive...
Oct-26-14  JosepCmd: "Fixing the Kar with Car" or "The Italian Job - Episode II"

For the Italian Job: Jobava vs Karjakin, 2013

Oct-26-14  Pulo y Gata: Karja can't.
Oct-27-14  MarkFinan: Can't believe he allowed the sac on h2. I'm guessing that's where the wheels came off anyway, it might not look sound to me but these guys are super GM's.
Oct-27-14  Eusebius: Looks like a game from the good old 1920's. Very nice.

I kind of agree with that. If Nh3 is played here..

... It's still not a good position for white either.

I've obviously looked with an engine, just to see what it made of the Bxh3, (basically 0.10) but it was still interesting to see how "accurate" these super GM's play.

I'm turning into a nerd! Lol.

Oct-29-14  JosepCmd: I think this game should take place in his notable games.
