Jan-29-17  PhilFeeley: How did Ivanchuk lose this, doubled rooks on the 7th? He underestimated black's defense, I guess.

<With only 40 seconds or so left he made a disastrous 34.Ree7 move which left his position in ruins.>

  WannaBe: Ivanchuk short on time before 40th move? No way, you gotta be kidding me, it's like the 5,000th time it's happened. =))
Jan-31-17  waustad: With 30 seconds/move increment the world blitz champ loses to a 17 year old because he was short on time? Maybe the kid is better than he thought. Even with the loss to Yu Yangi(sp?) he's on pace for his second GM norm in the last 3 months, and has been over 2500 live this week.
