  Gregor Samsa Mendel: Quite the seesaw affair, but Nisipeanu comes out on top.

Are the other players in the tournament going to sneak into Nisi's room while he's sleeping and cut off his hair, in hopes that it will take away his chess playing ability?

  An Englishman: Good Evening: In my playing days, 3.e5 was considered one of the most harmless variations Black could face. Not any more! This one turned berserk starting with 8...g5 (and how can that possibly be sound?!), eventually leading to the players taking turns sacrificing material.

I'm old and hopelessly weak nowadays, but I would venture to guess that the game turns decisively in Black's favor with 39.Nf3,Bf3. Knight & Bishop vs. Rook & Pawn frequently turn out badly for the minor pieces when they fail to work together, as here.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: I seem to remember that the computer evaluation went down after white played 40 Rxf3 instead of gxf3. But games of this type are completely beyond my ken.

  HeMateMe: Ken who?
Jun-29-15  catlover: Nisipeanu seems to be on a roll.

Seems to be a pretty wild game. I don't know about Ken (or Barbie) but the tactics are way beyond me. Maybe Kingcrusher will annotate this game.

  Honza Cervenka: 30.Be4! would have given white huge and probably decisive advantage.
