  An Englishman: Good Afternoon: Appears that both players sought a victory but were just too good for each other. There seem to be places where player had better moves, but it's too hard for this patzer to tell.
Mar-23-13  Rama: I watched this game on the tournament site and I thought Aronian was winning. He lost (sacced?) a pawn on move 22 but achieved activity. With the K-side and center stabilized along with his control of the d-file, his Q-side action was strong. I thought his a-pawn was going to win it for him.

But he played Bxa5 instead of Qxa5. Why? I liked 32. Qxa5 and 33. Rd5 at the time. Trade Queens, push the pawn.

The 'game analysis' feature was unavailable today, I wished I could've seen the evaluations.

Mar-24-13  RookFile: I had the same impression, that white should have won this game.
