Dec-22-07  dabearsrock1010: what a work of art! if i was rychagov i would have been overjoyed that moro had blundered his bishop by overworking his queen but moro had it calculated all along
Dec-22-07  slomarko: in my opinion Rychagov should have played Kh3 much earlier.
Dec-22-07  Jim Bartle: With all respect, I really doubt that Rychagov thought Morozevich had blundered the bishop. He knew his position was critical.
Dec-22-07  Grumpi: 48.Qd6 was crucial mistake. After 48.Nd2 black is lost.

For example 48.Nd2 Kg7 49.Qd4 g5 50.Kf5 Qh3+ 51.g4 and so on.

Dec-22-07  chessmoron: If Rychagov found 48.Nd2, Morozevich would play 48...f5+! 49.Rxf5! gxf5 50.Qxf5+ Kg8 draws.
Dec-27-07  Ulhumbrus: The course of the game suggests that if White has his QB placed badly on d2, Black is then able to develop his QN to c6 and his KB to d6. Black has developed his KB to d6 in the Queen's Indian defence before, for example, in the 1980 match between Korchnoi and Petrosian, in the games

Petrosian vs Korchnoi, 1980


Petrosian vs Korchnoi, 1980

An alternative to 33 Nd2-b1 is 33 e4 eg 33...dxe4 34 Nxe4 Rxd4 35 Nxf6! gxf6 36 Bxa8
