    At 3:30 you say that Morozevich has chosen to play a Breyer/Chigorin type set-up. This is incorrect however, since with the move 9...Bb7 the system being played is actually known as the Flohr-Zaitsev variation.

    Breyer is 9...Nb8 whereas Chigorin is 9...Na5. This type of thing is worth knowing.

    It's cool how the tone of your voice says: "I'm a genius, but I'm a pretty nice guy".

    Ra3 also kept the knight out of b3 square cause after Rb8 the cd cd trade in the centre allows Nb3 which forks Rook and Bishop and taking the dark Bishop in that particular posistion is favourable for Morozevich...superb play from Morozevich and ty 4 showing us Sam.

    I like the comments where you say it is ok to double develop your pieces that. es especially the bishops in the Ruy Lopez.  I always worried about that.  It was very interesting to watch the queen side develop from black.
