Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-21-10  mj29479: According to Engine Svidler missed a clear winning shot at move 32.

Analysis by Houdini 1.03a w32 2_CPU:

32.Qd2 Rg8 33.Qg2 Rg5 34.h4 Qxg1+ 35.Qxg1 Rxg3 36.Qxg3 Bd8 37.Nc6 Bb6 38.Qd3 Kg7 39.Qxd6 h5 40.Nb4 Bf2 41.Nxa6 Bxh4 42.Nc7 Rf8 43.Qd7 Kh6 44.Nxb5 Kg5 45.Nd6 Kf4 46.Qe7 Ra8 47.Qxf7 Kg4 (8.10) Depth: 23/65 00:03:18 190mN

...but this seems like a daily puzzle candidate...may be a Wednesday / Thursday?

Oct-21-10  Dr. Funkenstein: I was also expecting the queen switch to the kingside when playing through this game. It does show how hard it is to play the Najdorf against top players who alternate the threat of a strong attack with the threat of a positionally won endgame up a pawn. Impressive game by Svidler even though he missed the Qd2 shot as detailed above.
