Sep-21-22  Saniyat24: When Hans faces Davy Jones of The Flying Dutchman...!

  PawnSac: Giri just plays cool headed accurate chess, systematically solving problems and countering threats. From move 1 to 41 he remains in control. At no point in the game did i ever get the sense he was not in control.

But I have the feeling even though materially Hans is lost, he was over optimistic with ..Ra8 looking for counter play, not realizing the serious need to create a flight square for the Q. Bd3 must have been a real "UGH!" shocker.

40. ..Qe4 looks like the only move. Even so, it's a desperate state to face two beautiful dragons and a passer with a mere rook, after the knights are traded.

Alas, in the final position, giving up the queen for two minors is pretty much forced. As there are no squares! He didn't see the final blow coming. Time to call it quits.

Nice play by Anish!
