Sep-28-12  Marmot PFL: on Ng5? adams somehow missed Qf6, now black just trades down
Premium Chessgames Member
  scormus: I don't like it :(
Sep-28-12  dx9293: Gelfand up 3 pawns to 1 up in a R ending...move 41...
Sep-28-12  Marmot PFL: Gelfand, like Korchnoi, might be peaking in his 40s.
Premium Chessgames Member
  scormus: Hmmmm, 36 Qb3+ might have been worth a shot
Sep-28-12  Eyal: Yeah, looks like Adams blundered with 34.Ng5? - he has to lose a second pawn after 34...Qf6! (if he tries to defend against the back rank mate threat by 35.Rc1, then Black has 35...Qb2! 36.Nf3 Qxb4).
Sep-28-12  Strongest Force: Chessbomb had a different position.
Sep-28-12  whiteshark: A technical win
Sep-28-12  dx9293: Adams resigned!
Sep-28-12  lost in space: 0:1, everything else would be a big surprise
Sep-28-12  Ulhumbrus: Back again and Gelfand appears to be winning
Sep-28-12  Marmot PFL: White has thought a while now, which may mean one last look before resignation.
Sep-28-12  dx9293: I was watching the video feed...Adams resigned a couple of minutes ago. Waited till Gelfand came back to the table and extended his hand.
Sep-28-12  gharigac: Risigned

  boz: Hao-Topalov is interesting if anyone wants to switch.
Sep-28-12  Strongest Force: Gelfand is showing who the boss is.
Sep-28-12  Ulhumbrus: Adams has the worst of it after Gelfand's king's rook comes out. Adams has not found the right way to prosecute the attack, then. An alternative to c4 is to prepare the pawn advance g4 and g5. The main target is Black's king, after all, not the queen side.
Premium Chessgames Member And that's game! Gelfand is really on a tear. We'll be showing Gelfand-Giri as the featured game of the day tomorrow morning at 9:00am USA/Eastern.

But first ... we'll be traveling to sunny Sao Paulo to watch the next round in the Bilbao Masters. With Caruana in the lead, we'll see Aronian-Caruana. That game starts in only 40 minutes. See you then!

Sep-28-12  OneArmedScissor: I told you Adams would blunder. He's English. What do you expect?
Sep-28-12  Ulhumbrus: <OneArmedScissor: I told you Adams would blunder. He's English. What do you expect?> Mortals can't avoid blundering. We are born to err.
Premium Chessgames Member My apologies, the featured game from Sao Paulo today is Caruana-Vallejo Pons. (Aronian-Caruana is for tomorrow, assuming Caruana can maintain the lead.)
Sep-28-12  master of defence: What happens if 38.Rxh5??
Sep-29-12  Blunderdome: 38...Rf4 I think.
Sep-29-12  Everett: Surprised Adams assayed this line. Not that he doesn't know it, but he must have known that Gelfand is booked to the gills in this line from the WC. Why not play some of his other very effective off-beat Sicilians?
Sep-29-12  Everett: I wonder if Adams had considered 15.e5 followed by 16.Nc4, clamping down on the d6 square. I think Gelfand would have a tougher time mobilizing his K-side then.
