Jul-09-16  Conrad93: 25...Bc8?? was a tragic mistake. 25...Rac8 followed by Rc1 Rxc1-Rxc1+ is an easy draw, and there really isn't anything White can do about the open h file as the g pawn will always be hanging.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: Actually, the Computer says that both sides blundered on move 26 as well. Apparently, white should have played 26 Kd1 instead of Rh2, and after 26...Ra5 black could have equalized.

That computer line is rather difficult to understand compared to 26...Bc8 which is more glaring.

Jul-10-16  kingfu: I was thinking that 20...h6 would have been better defense.

Anyway, Black tries the Queen side expansion with 9...a4 and 10...a5. This might have been inspired by Harikrishna's win against Giri in Norway.

The Opening Explorer move was 9...f6 or f5.

Jul-10-16  morfishine: Yes <25...Bc8> was vomitous, which explains why I ran to the bathroom when I saw this move. Truly ugly, almost unprecedented
