Dec-21-15  luzhin: Neat: 41.Nxe2 Nd2+ 42.Kh2 Ra8 is mate. A mating pattern to remember.
Dec-21-15  kamagong24: i hate it when the pawnstorm fails
Dec-21-15  fisayo123: <kamagong24> 23.f6! was apparently possible as well. A sharper tactician would probably have played it.
Dec-21-15  john barleycorn: <luzhin: Neat: 41.Nxe2 Nd2+ 42.Kh2 Ra8 is mate. A mating pattern to remember.>

with 42.Ka2 it is :-)

Dec-21-15  Ulhumbrus: It seems that White did not find a way to open lines against the black king in the centre in time. One alternative to 19 Rg1 is 19 f6
Dec-21-15  Bruce Graham: Tasty smackdown at the end. Giri's grand smash.
Dec-22-15  JohnBoy: The finish would make a nice Wed puzzle. Took me a sec to understand. Must have been fun for Giri to see ahead of time. I wonder if he played it immediately or sat on it for a minute.
