The Wolf Grischuk leading the pack in Petrosian Memorial 2014

In this amazing fighting chess game in the third round of Petrosian Memorial GM Grischuk demolishes GM Morozevich. Alexander Grischuk, who is famed for his attacking chess, found a sharp variant of the Slav QGD for the game vs Morezevich. Both parties are walking on thin ice right out of the opening. Morezevich should have taken with the rook instead of the bishop in move 19. to equalize. On move 24. Morezevich was obliged to play Qf6 but he apparently fell through the thin ice with the wrong steep e5?! Grischuk missed a great opportunity to punish this weak move immediately when and he played 25.Bd2!? Morezevich would have drowned much faster with 25.Qh4! The last chance for Morozevich to hold on to an ice floe was 25..Rf8 but he missed it with 25..Rf6?! Then only ice cold water… 🙂
