Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-03-12  Bezlitosci: 22...Bg6. What Dgebuadze was thinking? Maybe he was seeing Giri slowly grinding him down with pressure on the kingside and decided to try to give a minor piece for two pawns and some perspectives of pawn march on the kingside. However, after this move Houdini evaluation jumped from about +0.40 to about +2.50 or something like that.
Sep-03-12  Andrew Chapman: It's not obvious to me why black couldn't take the knight eg 23..hxg6
Sep-05-12  Bezlitosci: <Andrew Chapman> He could take the knight, but then playing 22...Bg6 would be just giving the pawn for nothing. Taking the knight was better then the continuation in game, but Dgebuadze had an idea - he wanted to give a knight for two pawns and possibility of pawn march. That idea was unsound, but playing Bg6 and then taking the knight wouldn't be any idea - it would be just giving a pawn for nothing.
