Jun-22-04  Dick Brain: Guseinov certainly has problems such as what to do about h5,h4 as well as the doomed e-pawn.

  Chessical: Guseinov has been outplayed by Aronian. His pieces lack coordination, and he cannot easily respond to the threats outlined by <DickBrain>, e.g.

<20.Qe2> h5 21.Ba4+ Kf8 22.Rac1 h4 23.gxh4 Qxh4, when he cannot successfully reply with 24.g3.

  louispaulsen88888888: Stockfish gives the final position as -.064 and suggests 20Ba4+ Kf8 21.Nb3. Certainly a premature resignation then, according to the machine anyway.
