   Aug-03-14 Gelfand vs F Amonatov, 2014 (replies)
 
yevlev: Until move 12, they've followed more or less the main variation of this KID line. Nf5! is a are move, e5 was played instead. Gelfand's sees the weakness of black king, and gives up a full rook to exploit it! The pin of the f6 knight, black total underdevelopment on the queen side, ...

yevlev: Nxf7 is a well known gambit in the Petrov Defense, called Cochrane Gambit. However, it goes: e4 e5 Nf3 Nf6 Nxe5 d6 Nxf7.
 
   Aug-24-09 Gelfand vs Leko, 2009 (replies)
 
yevlev: Probably, Gelfand's best game in 2009. It should be included in his Notable Games.
 
   Aug-15-09 Aronian vs Gelfand, 2009 (replies)
 
yevlev: Gelfand's only (!) mistake in the whole game - 40...Nd7 in a severe time trouble. 40...Rd8 - and white has nothing. In the endgame he put the maximun resistance and played very accurately, but Aronian's technique is really superb. High class Super-GM game.
 
   Jul-29-09 Anand vs Lautier, 1998 (replies)
 
yevlev: Threat: f7 mate, if the rook will leave the 7th rank. Rf7/Rb7 --> Rxd6 fork Rd7 --> still Rxd6. Black can't take the knight because of mate, and now f7 protected 3 times. And if R8c7 --> Rg3+ Kh8 f7#.
 
   Jul-27-09 Gelfand vs Morozevich, 2009 (replies)
 
yevlev: 34. Re4 gives white good winning chances, and it's not such a difficult move to find, even in a tzeitnot. Simply a blunder. Let's not forget - Gelfand is 41 and in top 10. Age affects on calculation, but no way on understanding of the game.
 
   Apr-12-09 4th FIDE Grand Prix (2009) (replies)
 
yevlev: Gelfand is in a great form - he has a streak of 53 (!) consecutive games without a loss (in classical chess), and climbed to a career peak of 2753. He's the favourite, for sure.
 
   Apr-07-09 Gelfand vs Ivanchuk, 2009 (replies)
 
yevlev: 45...e4, of course, looks very strange, but Black's position was already lost. Maybe it was just a desperation move. The curious thing is how Ivanchuk misplayed that quite well-known and equal endgame...?
 
   Aug-24-08 Gelfand vs E Alekseev, 2008 (replies)
 
yevlev: 48. Nd3+ is a mistake. Nh3, with the idea of Ng5, of course, wins for white, probably.
 
   Aug-12-08 Aronian vs Gelfand, 2008 (replies)
 
yevlev: Even though Qe5 is a "one-move-tactics", it's not so easy to find - but, surely, not so difficul, either. Even the greatest players can "afford" themselves such mistakes onece in a while. But, unfortunately, it happend to Gelfand too many times after his great achievement in Mexico. ...
