  Gregor Samsa Mendel: I was following this game live until move 25, when I had to leave for work. I was really rooting for white to weather the storm, but it was not to be.

34.Re2 looks bad to me; maybe 34.Qe2 should have been tried instead. Or was white already lost by then?

Jan-26-07  Shams: 34.Qe2? Rxf4. well handled by black

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: Geez, I stared at the position for so long and overlooked a simple pin. So where did white go wrong?
Jan-26-07  Shams: hmm, allowing the Marshall in the first place? I keed, I keed. But isn't 14.d3 preferred now to d4, with white offering the exchange on e4?
Jan-26-07  adair10: Sargissian beat several ELO favorites, Eljanov, Jakovenko and now Bologan, but lost to lower rated players such as Kosintseva and Smeets. He would have been close to winning the tourney if he was more focused in those lost games.
Jan-27-07  DUS: <Gregor Samsa Mendel> This game was so deep. I was following it and often got lost, thinking that Sargissian's attack is over.
Apr-07-18  Saniyat24: Gabriel's blow-gun...!
Apr-08-18  Saniyat24: Was also amazed by Bologan's defensive skills, in the end though, Gabriel Sargissian squeezed him in a corner, and his Queen threw a poisonous dart from the c-file...!
