  master8ch: White was probably so shocked by Black's 23...gxf6 that he responded with the 24th move he'd planned for 23...Bxf6, even though it then served no purpose. 24.Nxe6 wins in one move less than the game.

  Pedro Fernandez: This way Gareyev defeated Robson indeed was remarkable. A good dosis of creativity from Timur surprised me given his performance in this U.S. Championship 2019.

Mar-31-19  spingo: Gareev played with great originality all the way through.

After the queens left the board White's bishops were strong like bulls.

  chancho: Timur took Ray Robson to his Garayev and gave him an ass whooping.

  perfidious: <chancho>, was Timur taking Robson to his Gareev anything like Jesus taking lost souls unto His bosom?

  chancho: The former is wailing and gnashing of teeth... the latter is salvation. 😉
