Sep-10-17  Captain Hindsight: Dear Anish, we all don't know why these things happen and why they happen to a knucklehead like you.

  Domdaniel: Giri was dead for so long ... how did he survive?
Sep-10-17  raihuer: A near miss that would be costly for Sethu..if at 30 g4! Nxg4 31 Rg6 hxg6 32 Bxg4 Rf2 33 Qc3 Rcf8..would been a nice shot
Sep-10-17  notyetagm: A similar game, S Shankland vs S P Sethuraman, 2016, where Sethuraman lost after having a 10-point(!) advantage.
Sep-11-17  columbeau: @raihuer : if 30.g4 - NxG4 31. Rg6- hxg6 32. Bxg4- Rf2 33. Qe4-Rcf8 34.Qxe3 in the pocket
Sep-11-17  Arconax: 42.Qd8+, forcing the exchange of queens, was the right practical choice. After 42...Qxd8 43.Nxd8 Rxc4 44.Rb2 White still has a huge advantage, and the position should be much easier to play for Sethuraman than what occurred in the game (he played 42.Qd7).

  Domdaniel: <notyetagm> - <where Sethuraman lost after having a 10-point(!) advantage.>

So SP is very good at building a winning advantage, but not always so hot at converting ... nerves, maybe?

Sep-11-17  fisayo123: Sethuraman needs to work on his conversion skills. Seems to let him down more often than you expect for a strong caliber 2600 GM
