"He defended like a tiger. He was down to five seconds each move but he found the best move each time."

Apr-24-11  NMWillStewart: This game was so great. Despite being by far the lowest rated player at the tournament 15 year old Naroditsky really can hold his own as shown in this game.

Black's <21..Bf6 22..Ke7> is a startling way to connect his Rooks. It makes sense: he wants to blockade the annoying Bh3-f5-Rc8 discovery. As a bonus, he frees up space for <26..Be8> a bishop thing, which keeps his own LSB in play until it can find a target.
