Sep-24-10  ArmeniaNL: nice game, though i could not figure out where jakovenko made a real mistake. In my opinion aronian just took small advantages and in the end turned into full point, nice game
Sep-25-10  computer chess guy: As ChessBase noted, 21. Bxf7! was a great move. White wins because the Black Knight will run out of squares and be lost. Rybka 3 likes Bxf7 even a low depths, but takes quite a while to see that it wins material.
Sep-25-10  positionalgenius: Beautiful game. I love the way aronian plays chess
Sep-27-10  paavoh: @ArmeniaNL: < though i could not figure out where jakovenko made a real mistake > Maybe 15.- a5 was an inaccuracy? Black lost some time and created a weak b4 pawn with the subsequent maneuvering. Perhaps developing Nbd7 was better?
Jan-26-14  Dave1: Beautiful and deep play from Levon. it is amazing
