  Stonehenge: Not bad Peter, not bad at all :)
Oct-26-09  computer chess guy: 21. ♖d1 would have saved White: if .. fxg6, 22. ♘xg6+ ♔f7 23. ♘e5+ etc. with a perpetual. Or Black can play .. ♔e7 but then Svidler's tactic does not work: 21. .. ♔e7 22. ♗h5 ♘xh5? 23. ♕xh5 and Black can't play ♕b7 because of the mate threat on f7.
Oct-26-09  Blaise99a: wow beautiful. Close to perfection. Forgotten why Svidler was so great.

yes, it seems 21. Rd1 would have kept it level, though 21. Rd1 fg 22. Ng6 Kg8 23. Rd8 Qd8 24. Qd6 Kh7 25. Nh8 Kh8 and then 26. Bf6 or c4....and it is hard to say who has the edge with W: Rook + two pawns vs. B: Two Strong Bishops, with both Queens on board. What do you think about this?

Oct-26-09  Blaise99a: Also, Fritz seems to think the game is still not over after 21. Bh5 Nh5- though Svidler seems to have played perfectly.

White could have been created difficulty with
26. Ne5 (instead of Nf4) with 26.....Bf2 27. Kf1 Qe7 28. Rc4 Bc5 (.....if Be1 29. Rc8 Rd8 30 Ba3 ! and the game is white's to lose.) 29. Re2 and Rd8.

If Black tries for something more, he could easily go astray, eg. 29....Rd1 30 Re1 Bg2 31. Kg2 Re1 32 b4! etc.

Oct-26-09  Gambitor: 20...Ba8! great move with a simple but strong idea: mate!
Oct-26-09  awfulhangover: Svidler is a fantastic player. Just ask Naka and Magnus,he has spanked them many times. If he spent more time on chess instead of cricket(!!), he would have been even stronger.
Oct-26-09  tibone: cricket is very important!!
Oct-26-09  tibone: not that chess would be but...
Oct-26-09  muradov: Wow! Beautiful game by Svidler! Classy.
Oct-26-09  I Like Fish: one move of the invisible queen...

one hand for the future...
and the spilling of seed...
