  saffuna: Looks like Aronian thought 19...Rxa5 would lead to a decisive attack on the kingside. Maybe he missed 22. g4 or another of white's defensive move.

In any case, I like to see attempts at attacks like Aronian's here.

Jul-12-22  Jambow: Strangely enough if I was unaware and you showed me this game I would have thought Aronian was white...

Two aspects that to me define Levon were his Laskerish (yes that's a word) positional use of the entire board with advanced outposts and the ability to get a passed pawn to glory!

  saffuna: Or maybe Aronian was thinking of this famous comment...

“You must take your opponent into a deep dark forest where 2+2=5, and the path leading out is only wide enough for one.”

...and this time he wasn't the walking out on the narrow path.

Jul-12-22  Jambow: That Samuel is able to play a legend at this rather amazing. I expect he will be advancing his rating above 2700 soon all his games from this tournament impress in some way, including the dismantling of Xiong.

Yeah Levon slipped off of it somewhere for sure, could be foul play ;0]
