  Pulo y Gata: It should have been over about half of the moves made, but Levon must have been very much shocked to see how he blundered a piece just like that.
Jan-13-15  amartir: sweet revenge! but still a long way to go So... some more patience & prayer would help a lot.....

Jan-14-15  bulibug: <Nina Myers: So Faillipine whizzkid couldn't score against Aronian. He's by no means a genius.>

Eat crow.

Jan-14-15  Makavelli II: I think this game is more Aronian playing badly than So playing fantastically. That Ng8 move was out of character for a player like Aronian. Still, So has a point more at this stage of the tournament than surely he expected.

<macky24: < He'll dominate like Kasparov did, and So isn't Carlsens Karpov, there's better players around.> not a bad opinion from a magnus fan.>

How old are you Bro?

Jan-14-15  bulibug: <So has a point more at this stage of the tournament than surely he expected.>

And he will have more points at the end of this tourney...

Jan-14-15  MarkFinan: Great game and way above my level of chess comprehension, but Ng8 was a blunder plus this wasn't the "accurate" Aronian we're used to seeing. Of course I say that with the benefit of an engine, but I could see suspect moves before I looked with stockfish.
Jan-14-15  boz: Don't forget, the great moves often look suspect at first.

  chancho: Dominguez and Aronian killed young Mister So in two miniatures last year, but he's paid both of them back in the second game.

Aronian and Dominguez are getting older.

Wesley on the other hand, is young and will only get better.

Wesley is in the big leagues to stay.

Jan-14-15  torrefan: Wesley isn't getting older?

  Pulo y Gata: He's obviously getting younger. The Curious Case of Wesley So.
Jan-14-15  torrefan: He's on his way then to become the only infant GM in the history of chess.
Jan-15-15  gokusano: <torrefan: He's on his way then to become the only infant GM in the history of chess.> Time to beat Benjamin Button's record.
Jan-15-15  iking: <bulibug: <Nina Myers: So Faillipine whizzkid couldn't score against Aronian. He's by no means a genius.> Eat crow.

a false prophet far above the north ... <ninaMyers> .... eat crow's dung Ninz if u wish.

Jan-15-15  coolconundrum: Amazing how the Scotch leads to complete chaos so quickly.

  WannaBe: <coolconundrum> Guess you've never been in a bar where Scotch is served. =))
Jan-16-15  upmitvaliant8791: A stunning victory from Wesley! Strong contender for the WCC, just a matter of time.
Jan-16-15  latvalatvian: This game illustrates the idea that some people have that chess is hard. I couldn't find a single one move attack in this game. It would be so much simplier and more people would play if one move attacks worked more often.
