Aug-29-08  Whitehat1963: WOW! Talk about a novelty! Movsesian must have been shocked out of his chair!
Aug-29-08  JonathanJ: well it's blitz so he probably ran out of time.
Aug-29-08  Whitehat1963: You're right; under time pressure, it must have been extremely difficult to respond to such a lightning bolt out of blue sky!
Aug-29-08  vikinx: whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa:0
Aug-29-08  Udit Narayan: I would like to know the story behind this game (if there is one), other than Movsesian being intimidated by Ivanchuk's #2 world ranking per live ratings.
Aug-29-08  Davolni: probably incomplete moves or something like that....
Aug-30-08  Whitehat1963: I bet his cell phone rang.
