Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-26-11  birthtimes: Aronin's 22nd move was a lemon, as Nezh quickly demonstrates. Better for White was 22.Bxe4 Nf6 23.Qe2 Nxe4 24.fxe4 Qh4+ 25.Bf2 Rxf2! 26.Qxf2 Qxe4+ 27.Kf1 Qxd5 28.Qc2 h5 29.Rd1 Qf7+ 30.Qf2 Qe6 31.h4 Rxa2 and Black is slightly better but a draw seems likely.
Jan-26-11  birthtimes: Aronin would have been better off playing his 22nd move on move 20 instead...20.Bb6 Qxd5 21.Rd1 Qc6 22.b5 Qc8 23.Nd6 Qc3+ 24.Qd2 Qxd2+ 25.Rxd2 Be6 26.Nxb7 Bh6 27.Rb2 Rxa2 28.Rxa2 Bxa2 29.Bc7 Ra8 30.Nc5 Bd5 31.Na6 Be3 32.Nb4 Bb3 33.Ke2 Bd4 34.Kd2 Ra1 35.Nc2 Ra2 36.Bd3 Rb2 37.b6 Nf6 38.Re1 Nd7 39.Kc1 Bxc2 40.Bxc2 Rb4 and White is better due to his outside passed pawn, the bishop-pair, better king position, and the weakness of Black's pawns.

  Benzol: <birthtimes> <Aronin's 22nd move was a lemon, as Nezh quickly demonstrates. Better for White was 22.Bxe4 Nf6 23.Qe2 Nxe4 24.fxe4 Qh4+ 25.Bf2 Rxf2! 26.Qxf2 Qxe4+ 27.Kf1 Qxd5 28.Qc2 h5 29.Rd1 Qf7+ 30.Qf2 Qe6 31.h4 Rxa2 and Black is slightly better but a draw seems likely.>

Instead of 27...Qxd5 in the above line Nezhmetdinov himself thought 27...Ra8 would give Black a decisive attack.

Nov-20-11  birthtimes: If 22.Bxe4 Nf6 23.Qe2 Nxe4 24.fxe4 Qh4+ 25.Bf2 Rxf2! 26.Qxf2 Qxe4+ 27.Kf1 Ra8 28.Kg1 Rf8 29.Re1 Qxb4 30.a3 then White may eventually be a pawn down with 2 rooks for a queen and drawing chances...

  plang: Nezhmetdinov was critical of 4 e4 though after 10 Qd2 the game had transposed into the Samisch variation of the Kings Indian. 10..Nc5 was a new move that has not been repeated; 10..a6 is the main line. Nezhmetinov is critical of White's queenside attack but does not make a very convincing case. White was doing OK until his 22nd and 23rd moves - then the end came suddenly.
