Vladimir Petrov Memorial, Jurmala, March 2016. Rapid tournament.


  1. ivanchuk at the end plays dirty with two hands

  2. Ivanchuk made up about 2 minutes on the clock there. But did he resign in the end? What's the problem with the Q sac? RxR, Qe8+ Kh7, Nf5 getting ready for Qxf7 but that is blocked by Rf2. Is that right? Did I miss something? Or did Bortnyk just lose on time?
