Yes, this is the best game I have ever seen Van Wely play.

Jun-22-07  HLecter: yes. stunning. I think Van Wely, after loosing the first two, has been slightly underestimated by his two recent opponents. Hes very dangerous when underestimated. This game is magnificent i think.

  Stonehenge: Yes, beautiful game by van Wely. I think 11.Neg5! was a novelty.
Jun-22-07  PaulKeres: I agree, it was a lovely game from van Wely!!
Jun-22-07  Eyal: Jakovenko's 20...Ba3? allows White to decide the game immediately by 21.Ne7+ Kh8 22.Bd4 Qa5 23.Bxf6 Qxf5 24.Rd8; the only way for Black to hold was 20...Qb4. With 21.Qf3 Van Wely gives Jakovenko another chance (after 21...Na6 Black might even have a slight edge), but Jakovenko throws it away by 21...Bc8?
Jun-23-07  argishti: What a dominating game! wow.
Mar-18-08  Whitehat1963: Use the fork, Loek!
