‘Announcing the 25th World Champion!

Thursday, December 13, 2012: GM Fabio Finocchiaro
After 3 years of play and with only one game remaining, the 25th World Championship Final has a winner and New World Champion, GM Fabio Finocchiaro from Italy!…(more).’

Here is my analysis of game #72 which went 2.Bg5 g6 3.Nc3 d5 and white won a model game.

This was a hard game to analyze as the critical mistake for black is not easy to identify. After white sets up with Qd2/f3, black’s game just kept slipping downhill. Maybe the key improvement for black is 3…Bg7 as 3…d5 is not very appealing(for black).

Position 1
White has opened the g-file sucessfully and has pressure. What is the best way to continue?
