  luzhin: After 22.Bf4 or 22.Qg3 White would have had a slight edge wirh the two Bs. But 21.Qf4? walked into the brilliant 21...Bc4!! after which Howell had a raging intiative. Playing on increment from move 29, the Englishman kept up the pressure superbly--30...Rf6! was terrifically strong.

Dec-31-17  GrahamClayton: Excellent endgame play by Howell, driving the white bishop away from defending the c3-pawn.
