  An Englishman: Good Evening: 38.Rh3 is an incredible and incredibly quiet little killer of a move.
Jul-19-16  Eusebius: Wonderful game.
Jul-19-16  The Kings Domain: Good, tense game where it's a race to the finish on who'll have the final say. White kickstarted a nice sacrificial attack ala Morphy-Anderssen building on Nepomniachtchi's poor position. I could imagine the nerves of the players on this game.
Jul-19-16  GrandMaesterPycelle: I can't tell why Bartel kept not taking the bishop on g5. I suppose he had the game under control the whole time, but it seems like he allowed some unnecessary counterplay
Jul-19-16  j4jishnu: Fine Game! Loved it!
Jul-19-16  posoo: Posoo DID it! Now all da popple on here who think dat I am DUMM (and beleve it or not they are OUT THERE) will have to look at DIS game and see a little insite into da mind of da old pose.
Jul-19-16  ajile: 9.Bg5 Nf6? and now Black's pawns are ruined and the bishops don't really compensate. Instead Black got a good game here:

J Barj vs T Koop, 2015

with the more thematic 9..Qa5.

  kevin86: Though white's queen is open to capture, due to the mate threats, it is black's queen that will be lost.

  catlover: Thanks, <ajile> for the link to the Barj/Koop game. Looks like 3...Nc6 is playable despite the disastrous result in this game.

Glad they left it up, as I did not get the pun yesterday. This morning, for some reason, it was finally as obvious to me as it should have been.
