Jan-16-10  percyblakeney: Harikrishna must be the highest rated player Giri has won against, but he probably won't hold that record for a long time...
Jan-16-10  achieve: I just now watched/analysed the finish, but this is technically delightful.

Giri will become a major force in Chess in time.

Jan-16-10  notyetagm: Go Giri!
Jan-16-10  shintaro go: This game was lost as early as 9..Qh4+. What was Harikrishna thinking?
Jan-17-10  Whitehat1963: Wow! Quite an achievement!
Jan-17-10  tonsillolith: <shintaro go: This game was lost as early as 9..Qh4+. What was Harikrishna thinking?> Yes, it must have been a very unpleasant last 40 moves or so for Harikrishna.
